As war gets closer in Ukraine, signs of progress are being reported from Vienna, where Iran and world powers are discussing a new nuclear agreement. Is a new deal actually within reach, and will it be a weaker, more dangerous agreement as Israeli officials have been warning? Nuclear historian Avner Cohen joins the podcast to answer these questions, and also to explain how Putin is using the Iran card against America, and why China won't mind if Iran becomes a nuclear threshold state.

Later on this episode, host Amir Tibon hears from EcoPeace Israel director Gidon Bromberg about the unique threats of climate change in the Middle East, but also how it can be used to foster greater cooperation in the region. Ahead of this week's Haaretz climate conference, featuring Biden's special climate envoy John Kerry, hear what can be done to reverse the worrying rise of global temperatures, and how a crisis can be an opportunity for peace, starting at time code 25:30.
