  An Austrian Theory of Environmental Economics - Mises Institute
In particular, environmental economics is an outgrowth of the theory of externalities and is primarily focused on maximizing the social value of resource usage.
Economic analysis of the environment that starts from a praxeological perspective shifts the focus from maximizing the social value of output or equating price to marginal social cost, to efficient intra- and inter-personal plan formulation and execution, i.e., the internal consistency between the means that people use and the ends that they desire to achieve.
Environmental problems are brought to light as striking at the heart of the efficiency problem as typically seen by Austrians, that is, they generate human conflict and disrupt inter- and intra-personal plan formulation and execution.

 WorldChanging: Another World Is Here: Mainstreaming of Environmental Economics
Environmental thinkers like Hawken and Lovins have long argued for market players and the market system to pay for the true costs of externalities and environmental inputs like water, soil quality, and air -- inputs which were often used free, or almost free, of charge -- and thus a form of subsidy.
basically, economics, or political economics, or environmental economy, or human ecology, or whatever you want to call it, (sustainability science?) needs more data and more analysis, qualitative and quantitative, as well as fresh thinkers to transcend the neo-classicist dogma thats prevented these ideas from penetrating the mainstream 'til now.
The whole economic environmentalism thought process bothers me a little because it ignores what's right/wrong unless it can be expressed in economic terms.
