In fact, take a look at some of the thoughtful ways that people interested in the humanities (writing, history, philosophy, literature, for example) are thinking about the environment:

The Environment & Society Portal offers access to articles, images, and recordings about how people interact with the environment.

 

The Environmental Humanities Project, based at Stanford University, showcases research conducted by "humanities scholars in disciplines such as cultural studies, history, literary studies, philosophy and anthropology that has engaged with environmental problems, and explores how this research contributes to current discussions about ecological crisis."

Environmental Humanities is an open-access journal that "draws humanities disciplines into conversation with each other, and with the natural and social sciences" about environmental concerns.
