There's this one team that reads a 1AC (Carbon Nanotube based Desalination) and they tend to do pretty well at tournaments. Their advantages are generic, Agriculture/Food and Economy. I end up reading generic responses to their advantages or a lame politics DA but don't have/couldn't find any legit cards or evidence against the technology. All my Environment DA's are rendered useless as they are tuned for Reverse Osmosis or other tech. As for K's, as much as I love them, the only time we ever hit them is at a super lay parent tournament so K's aren't the best strat. Can anyone direct me to evidence, arguments, or articles against carbon nanotube? I'd be willing to trade for a compiled neg for this aff. Offcase strats I HAVE TRIED AND FAILED AGAINST THIS AFF: China CP - They Permed it quite nicely, but probably could have won off it that round. OTEC CP - They have a card that says its 6 times more efficient in water production Floating Desalination Ships CP - Failed because evidence doesn't indicate cost/existence/requirement of infrastructure to distribute water from ships. Politics DA (several) - FIAT FIAT FIAT ( Parent judges seem to just love the word too) Heidegger K - It was going well, but as I said K's are frowned upon in this league Apocalyptic Rhetoric K - Same as Heidegger Biodiversity DA - Reverse Osmosis not Carbon nanotube Environment DA - Reverse Osmosis not Carbon nanotube
