Not trying to claim any moral superiority but every time I hear the that trad is more environmentally friendly than sport I get a bit of annoyed. It's a ridiculous argument. In most climbing areas the biggest impact on the environment is from access to the climbing.

If people don't like bolting, fair enough. If people like trad climbing that's awesome for them. Just don't try and tell me one is better than the other, or one is purer or more environmentally sound.
