About The Event
Dan Rabinowitz's new book, published Aug 25 2020 by Stanford University Press, looks at the future of the Middle East in light pof two important processes which are already unfolding: climate change and the decline of oil. Its main argument is counterintuitive: could the oil-kingdoms of the Persian Gulf emerge as part of the solution to the global climate crisis rather than part of the problem? Dan is joined by Professor Alon Tal (Head of the Deparment of Public Policy, TAU), author of Pollution in the Promised Land and of The Land Full, to discuss The Power of Deserts.
