This week we celebrate Earth Day – a day that promotes clean living and a healthy, sustainable habitat for people and wildlife alike.

A main component to a cleaner environment is climate education. At The Fredy and Nadine Herrmann Institute of Earth Sciences at The Hebrew University they are doing just that – focusing on the latest in the fields of climate change, water resources and natural hazards.

On this episode of HUJI Bites, we speak with Dr. Nathan Steiger, a new faculty member at the Institute whose research focuses on megadroughts – where they happen, why they happen and what we can do to help ensure a cleaner and safer planet.
