I'd like to point out that it seems to be more of a Pro Chalk Lobby (PCL) than vice versa. All we are suggesting is that maybe there is no harm in trying??? We have never been campaigning that this issue is a wide global threat of greater importance than fuel emissions. We do not particularly judge people we see outdoors sweating on a tough climb using a bit of chalk. We appreciate when we hear that somone sees our point, tries going without & comes to their own decision (whether agreeing with us or not).

I enjoyed that we were called narrow-minded, naive and hypocritical in a previous post... Especially as we were the ones offering an alternative and have been attacked and ignored by most. Quite amusing ...ah... hypocrasy?
