Ben Caspit speaks this week with Maya Jacobs, who heads Israeli NGO Zalul Environmental Association. For Jacobs, even though the new cabinet calls itself the government of change, no real change has been seen on environmental issues and no real commitment was made to addressing the dangers of climate change. "Despite having new governments in the US and in Israel, our government here keeps proving that climate change does not really interest it," she says. She feels that the new government is actually reducing the responsibilities of the ministry for environmental protection, instead of increasing its domain of authority.
