SFDebate Political Discussion Meetup

The SF Debate Meetup is an open forum for discussion on the events of our time.We have three goals

UNDERSTAND OTHER POINTS OF VIEWWith so much news available to us, it is easy to fall into the trap of relying on sources that simply support and reinforce our own limited beliefs. The SF Debate Meetup is a chance for you to expand your perspectives and understanding. We believe that when opinions are discussed in public, extreme views are moderated and common ground is found.

DEVELOP YOUR PERSUASIVE SKILLSIf you want to be able to convince others of your ideas; if you want to change the world we live in, SFdebate is the forum for you. Consider SFdebate to be a 'dojo' for persuasive speaking. It is a place where you will not only be exposed to opposing points of view, but a safe place where you will be encouraged to find and speak up for yours.

DRUNKEN DEBATESFDebate is also meant to be fun. It is a meeting of minds, and we follow every meeting with drinks and a bite to eat at a local bar/restaurant.More info at http://www.sfdebate.org/

This House would Invest more in Nuclear Energy
Tuesday, June 26, 2007 at 7:00PM

Is nuclear power the best way to meet the ever-increasing energy needs of the planet, or do alternative energy sources provide a viable alternative?In recent years this has been a hugely contentious debate. There is much public fear about nuclear energy, fuelled by accidents such as Chernobyl and Three Mile Island. It is, however, an issue which is becoming more important as we approach a time when fossil fuels are contributing to global warming, making it necessary to find other power sources.This debate therefore covers not just nuclear energy but also the alternatives of fossil fuels and renewable sources. It has to some extent, two strands of opposition. The arguments put forward by the fossil fuels lobby are distinctly different from those put forward by environmental groups.
