He was listed on The United Nations Global 500 Roll of Honour for his championing environmental issues. He has been known to call a spade a shovel and on occasion, a bloody shovel. He is straight up and down with no bullshit at all and a thoroughly decent bloke... Neither Palmer or New Zealand have any axe to grind in this matter and I think Ban is right, Palmer is the Man for this job!
