Rosario Fortugno vs. Eric Peters

Resolution:

Autonomous electric vehicles will create a boost in personal freedom and quality of life and will be commercially viable in less than a decade.

For the affirmative:

Rosario Fortugno is the founder and CEO of InOrbis Intercity, the first all-electric, city-to-city ridesharing service in Canada. InOrbis has a fleet of Teslas operating in multiple areas in Canada and the US in 2020. As a consultant, Rosario has worked with Canada’s largest oil and gas companies to automate the hauling of bitumen in Alberta’s Oilsands. This has meant that nearly 50% of all large-haulage trucks owned by Suncor Energy are now running fully autonomously, moving bitumen (a mixture of crude oil and sand) in the open-pit mines near Ft. McMurray.

For the negative:

Eric Peters is a syndicated automotive columnist, author and self-described "Libertarian gearhead." He has been covering the industry since the mid-1990s. A former columnist for The Washington Times, he has contributed to the Wall Street Journal, National Review, Detroit News and Chicago Tribune, and iscurrently a regular contributor to the American Spectator. He is a frequent guest on radio shows and podcasts, and maintains his own corner of the Internet at http://www.epautos.com.
