Lecture: “The Power of Deserts: Climate Change, the Middle East, and the Promise of a Post-Oil Era” with Dan Rabinowitz (Tel Aviv University)

March 25, 2021 | 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


What if oil-rich Middle Eastern countries decide to turn their focus toward harnessing their immense solar energy potential? Dan Rabinowitz (Tel Aviv University) explores this counterintuitive proposition in his latest book, published by Stanford University Press. He’ll give a brief talk and engage in dialogue with Duke’s Erika Weinthal at this virtual event.




Sponsored by the Duke University Energy Initiative, the Duke University Center for International and Global Studies, and the Duke University Middle East Studies Center.  Co-sponsored by the Environmental Institutions Seminar Series from Duke’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, University Program in Environmental Policy, Nicholas School of the Environment, and Sanford School of Public Policy.
