Should Debates be allowed in another languages?
Why not a multi threaded- multi lingual approach? I'm pretty fluent in both Spanish and English, for example. I could seed a question or start a debate in both (imagine a tree with 2 branches). Those who can also write in both languages could answer in both branches, those fluent in only one of them could post on their branch, or start a new branch if they know another language. There could be an option to collaboratively translate popular or relevant answers so that they could appear trough all the language branches. (Imagining this, I see it would be amazing to have a visual representation of a particularly intense debate trough different branches/languages. Ideas do spread like wildfires after all.)

Is there a realistic approach to provide a "comfortable" way of life to every human being on the word? Can the Earth support it?
Earth has enough capacity to provide plenty for each and every human being/need. To make it sustainable, we need to shift away from the eastern (read: american) standard of living. A houseful of appliances in the suburbs, a gas guzzling SUV in the garage and a fridge full of HFCS laden frozen tv dinners is not what constitutes a "comfortable" way of living.
