We very much appreciate this thoughtful and constructive response from Steven Kolmes. In most respects we agree with the ideas here and in particular the invitation to think more and think practically about the temporal dimensions of justice and injustice, which we also see as connected to the spatial ones. While consideration for future generations is a quintessential feature of environmental justice analysis, the environmental conflicts we see around the world today revolve around grievances that often have roots in the past. Those currently suffering from climate change impacts are harmed by past activities, mainly by people living far away from them. Many of those struggling for territorial integrity and cultural autonomy are dealing with harms that go back to colonialism
