This short commentary explores two absences in Bulkeley’s (2019) human geographies of climate change. First, the absence of other environment problems, signifying how in the debate about climate change our response often acts to crowd out other problems. Second, in considering the temporal boundaries of climate’s human geographies, the absence of the future, which is increasingly being brought into being by scenarios, visualizations and creative works.
