The climate crisis and responsible journalism

As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I’m trying the facts over to bring and… science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to official policies that affect our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can be part of the solution.

I am passionate about the natural world and discouraged by the dreadful lack of awareness of environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.

I’m proud to do my part to keep Times of Israel readers are well informed over this essential topic – what can and does effect policy change.
