I am beginning work on a new topic paper for the 2008-2009 season. The problem
area is global warming. I'd like input on how to frame a resolution(s) that
would accomodate most teams that run critical affirmatives. Stating the problem
area is simple--plenty of people say that global warming is a problem and that
humans are a major cause. The solvency mechanism(s)--ones that would actually
solve, are the real problem.

Examples of draft resolutions:

Resolved: The USFG should enact a policy to substantially reduce global warming
through legislation, regulation or formal international agreement.

Resolved: The USFG should enact a policy to substantially reduce the
emission(s)of greenhouse gases through legislation, regulation or formal
international agreement.

Resolved: The United Stattes should enact a policy to substantially reduce its
grenhouse gas emissions to, or below, 1990 emission levels.

Input would be appreciated.
