As global warming speeds up, the world is suffering an increasing number of extreme weather events, from severe storms to floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.

Prof Colin Price,  head of Tel Aviv University’s department of geophysical, atmospheric and planetary science, has made it his lifetime’s work to warn people of future natural disaster and keep them safe.

Among many other activities, Price tracks lightning activity from around the globe in order to devise an early-warning system for flash floods.

Price came to TLV1 Radio  to talk to ISRAEL21c reporter Viva Sarah Press about his groundbreaking weather-related research and to provide listeners with the lowdown on climate change.
