Comments:
I voted aff for Team 32.
Inherency doesn’t matter because the aff proves that even if there are REE’s now, they can’t be mined
CP doesn’t solve the aff’s heg advantage and that outweighs the mitigated risk of the China Relations NB

-Good 1NC, but maybe get to case with more time since you only put one answer on each flow
-Know your 1NC evidence a bit better in CX so you can answer more of his very good questions quickly
-Good job using un-underlined parts of the aff’s evidence on the China Coop CP to prove they’re wrong – do this more!
-1NR needs to get to case with more time
