This paper analyzes the relationship between learning history and environmental issues. The link between history and environmental issues raises a new subdiscipline, namely environmental history. Environmental history looks at how humans have relationships and interact with the environment. In the history class, environmental issues cannot be separated because they are part of the subject matter. But how is the environmental issue narrated? More specifically, this paper analyzes how environmental history is described in Indonesian history textbooks. Have environmental issues received the appropriate portion in Indonesian history textbooks? Through critical discourse analysis, history textbooks for the 2013 curriculum were analyzed. The content of the environmental problems explained in history textbooks includes (1) the environmental ethics of community; (2) patterns of community and environmental interactions; (3) environmental management policies; (4) environmental problems in the past; (5) continuity of current environmental problems with the past.
