OPINION:

What if we treated Climate Change with the same gravitas as Easter or war?

Remember two months ago when everyone was up in arms about school kids organising a one-day strike for climate justice? Various media pundits were blasting the kids for being both lazy and overly optimistic, and worst of all - trying to get a day off of school.

Well, we just shut down the country for three days last week without batting an eye. Those same media outlets were running stories on how people could get 10 days off by using only two days vacation.
