About "Offshore Oil Drilling"
The government leases out some of our oceans to energy companies to drill for oil and natural gas. This is known as offshore drilling – the production of oil and gas offshore. The premise of the affirmative case is simple: offshore drilling is beneficial, so we should increase it. Offshore drilling creates jobs in the drilling industry and increases our oil and natural gas supply. Having more oil and gas means oil and gas prices will be lower, we won’t need to import as much oil, and we can export oil and gas to other countries. This will benefit our economy and increase national security as we will have a guaranteed supply of essential resources. The negative brief provides evidence again the affirmative case.
