Good afternoon, our group thinks that technologies do more harm than good. We are going to use two specific kinds of technologies to talk about the harmful of it. The first one is about the harmful of using smart phones and the second one is the harmful of having nuclear power/ power plant. According to the Wikipedia, the definition of technology is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques in order to solve a problem, achieve a goal or perform a specific function. It can also refer to the collection of such tools, machinery, modifications, arrangements and procedures. Smartphones contain operating systems, similar to computers, which allow them to store data and perform multiple technological functions that mean smart phones are a kind of technology. As our group thinks that technologies do more harm than good, smart phones obviously have disadvantages. The first one is it deprives positive human qualities of the society. Students, teenagers are thought to respect their family members, friends, but if you keep on tabbing your smart phone when u are having dinner with your family or attending a talk, is it a kind of respect? We bet not really, this is really a disrespectful attitude. Besides, it destroys your relationship with your family too as if your parents keep on calling u , and u just ignore them because u want to chat with your friends on Facebook, this will lead to arguments at home, u won’t have a peace and warm family than. Technology really can destroy our family relationships. Good values of a student or teenager may lose too, so today’s motion must stand!

Our dearest opponent said that…… we totally disagree with her because…. We would like to rebut on the point of……..

Besides destroying family relationships, using smart phone too long can cause health problems too. On 31 May, the World Health Organization confirmed that mobile phone use may represent a long-term health risk. One study of past cell phone use cited in the report showed a "40% increased risk for glioma (brain cancer) for heavy users who spend average 30 minutes per day to tab or keep on talking with friends on phone. Besides, their eyes will also get affected since the screen of the mobile phone is too bright, the light may reflect and cause damage to eye. Short sight is also a common eye problem find in teenagers who spend most of their time on mobile phone. According to a report last month in student standard, it stated that Seventy-seven percent of Hong people are at risk of developing glaucoma - a leading cause of blindness which is really a serious problem. Another fear of carrying mobile phones is the risk it generates while driving. It has been proven that a driver on a mobile phone is far less attentive and is more prone to accidents than a driver without a cell phone. Even a hand free is no big defense as hands free can only free up the hands for driving but not the driver’s mind. Even people who are walking and talking at the same time on the road can put themselves in danger because they cannot concentrate on two things at the same time. This may lead to serious accidents and death. At last, you yourself will regret. Using mobile or smart phone for too long can cause various health problems, sometimes accidents may occur too which lead to death. That’s why technology does more harm than good. So, today’s motion must stand.

Our dearest opponent said that…… we totally disagree with her because…. We would like to rebut on the point of……..

As we have talked about the disadvantages of smart phones, we would like to switch to another technology---nuclear power to state the harmful of technology. According to Wikipedia, Nuclear power is the use of sustained nuclear fission to generate heat and electricity. Although many countries want to build more nuclear power plants to generate electricity, we think that nuclear power has great disadvantages. First of all, through...
