One expert's comparing climate change to nuclear war.

Young Kiwis around the country will strike again today.

And there are specific demands for the Government about the zero carbon bill.

Auckland University Professor Niki Harre told Tim Dower in her day the big issue was the threat of nuclear war, these days it's climate change.

Harre says the thing that's similar about them is the need for collaboration across borders to drive change.
