Love Canal Debate (Questions)

1) Are you sure that this area is fully isolated from any contact with humans, houses, and animals?
2) Would you live right next a once toxic dump that seeped toxic mud into peoples' basements?
3) Do you trust in the protective layering and cap on the Love Canal?
4) Do you have any relatives with birth defects?
5) Do you care about Love Canal?
6) Why are you a citizen,scientist,OC petroleum, environmentalist, or Mayor of Love Canal?


  1. 1) Are you sure that you can contain the toxins if they leek out again?
    2) Is there even a slight possibility that toxins still remain?
    3) Do the toxins stay in the air/soil/still water like it did with the nuclear bomb in Hiroshima?

  2. Good questions- some more you can bring up in the debate are:

    1. Are there any more chemicals in the area?
    2. Will you ensure the responsibility of cleaning up if another catastrophe occurs?
    3. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being highest risk, what is the likelihood of an illness in the area?
