Participatory Justice Tested

The recent article “Colorado Communities Take on Fight Against Energy Land Leases” (The New York Times) examines the question of participatory justice and the role of energy leases in Colorado.  Indeed, several questions come to mind as I reflect on our discussions in class: What are the claims (and the basis of the claims)? What is the community of justice? What are the principles of justice that underpin this case?  What are the principle of justice that are legally recognized, what claims are disregarded, which ones are legally recognized? How does social and political power influence the process of environmental decision making?
