Science Debate

In April 2010, in the run-up to the May 2010 general election, Rory Palmer took part in a debate centred around scientific literacy in government with fellow candidates David Tredinnick (Conservative), Michael Mullaney (Liberal Democrat) and Michael Brooks (Science Party). It was reported that "the Liberal Democrat and Labour candidates toed their respective party lines on science, happy to contribute to Brooks' bruising of Tredinnick and quick to turn the debate to local issues when they saw an opportunity to score points."[1]

Climate Change

Mr Palmer signed the Climate Action Network (CAN) Pledge prior to the 2014 European elections[2]. The pledge included a commitment "to support the development of climate and energy policies that set us on a roadmap to decarbonisation".
