Inspector Climate and I talk a lot about politics, and luckily we agree and lean on the same side of the fence. The other day we were talking about politicians and how they speak. I think regardless on your political leanings, we can all agree that Obama is an inspired speaker and he has a vision. Whether you believe in it or you think he can achieve it or whatever it's there.
One of my biggest beefs with the opposition leader in Australia (besides nearly everything) is that he doesn't have a vision. He has a whole list of things that he opposes (he takes his title of opposition leader literally) but I have no idea what he is for.
I'm guilty of the same thing, sometimes it's easy to say what you don't want rather than what you do want.
So here is my vision (well my vision for me...I mean my vision for the world is peace, education, sustainability, and health...you know, the usual).
I want to use social media and writing to engage people on climate change. And not just people who are already aware and familiar, but people who aren't.
I want to move out of the city and start growing my own food by the time I'm 30 - at least be planning the move.
I want to live by example, slowly using less plastic, using/reusing more and more of everything, buying more and more organic items and creating space to step away from buying 'a thing' because they're cheap and buying things because they are needed and they didn't hurt anyone in production.
I've still got a long way to go. My vision can't be accomplished in the next month or the next three years. But that's why it's a vision and I'll keep working on it.
