Why We Need Environmental History

Donald Worster  
The modern environmental crisis requires a new kind of history or sense of the past. We must see history in a radical new light, as a story of people interacting with nature over time, each challenging and changing the other. That new history,which is already appearing in countries around the world, has many practical uses for scientists and policy makers who are trying to meet the crisis. It can provide a deeper understanding of the rise of conservation and environmentalism, which are powerful political forces in modern societies. It can help make ecology and other environmental sciences more thoughtful and sophisticated in their approach to problem solving. It can furnish more profound and critical knowledge of our economic culture and institutions, especially the dominant economic culture of capitalism, and of their consequences for the earth. And it can offer a deeper understanding of the particular places in which we live, the places where we must find better ways to live.
