Environmental economics and mainstream economics

Robert Metcalfe at Natural Capital asks: Is environmental economics relevant within mainstream economics?

He writes: ‘Repec released a top 200 list of economics journal articles that have received the most citations, unweighted and weighted. If my eyes havenít deceived me, there are NO environmental or resource economics journals in the top 200, for both lists…What is environmental economics doing wrong? Ok 200 is not a big list, but hey I was still expecting one article.
I suppose I too was expecting at least one. Food for thought.
