I would firstly disagree that environmental history is a young discipline. Yes, compared to studies like mathematics it is, however, environmental history has been with us for over 30 years and during that time it established itself well within history and within other disciplines as a reliable source of information. And during that time it has produced some amazing work. For Eastern Africa it was able to follow the spread of the sleeoing disease and how people have dealt with the spread of East Coast Fever. Historical sources can be reliable and very informative. It just s happens that the sources from Classical Greece and the bible are not. They are not in any way accurate or systematically collected data.
