EnvironmentView is using a fake axis for advanced formatting options as described here:
Crosstab of Many Colors
ResolutionIn certain views, clicking the quick sort button produces unexpected results.
The reason is that the view is misleading, by creating a dual axis chart using ATTR(1) the view only looks like a single column. However, it is actually a scatterplot, and the quick sort is sorting by the measure that makes up that axis, in this case ATTR(1).
To achieve the desired sort, Right click on the dimension on the rows shelf and select sort. Select Ascending, descending and the field and aggregation as desired for the sort.
To make this dynamic, use parameters as described in the following articlehttp://kb.tableau.com/articles/knowledgebase/sort-using-parameter-control
