The truth is that small changes alone won’t be enough to rescue the earth. Institutional climate action is required to prevent global warming from exceeding the critical 2-degree Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) threshold.
However, it doesn’t mean that you should feel powerless or that your efforts are in vain. Reducing your individual carbon footprint can help soothe your anxiety about the climate by giving you some control. Even the simplest acts will help preserve our planet’s habitability. So, with that in mind, here’s how Larsen Engineers are doing their part in reducing our carbon footprint.
They are Helping Out with Syracuse, NY, Local Waterfront
In order to eliminate obstacles to sustainable development, the LWRP will amend municipal regulations and ordinances, give ideas, and identify projects that do so. It will also include sea level rise forecasts and resiliency measures in community planning. The NYS (New York State) and DOS (Department of State) (DOS) have financed this procedure under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.
The main purpose of the LWRP is to increase and promote public access to the waterfront and foster coastal resilience while minimizing the effects of future flooding and sea level rise. They are also trying to improve water quality, address related water quality issues, and reduce conflict between recreational and commercial waterfront users.
Larsen Engineers ( as sub-consultants) are playing their part in the LWRP by focusing on renewable energy sources. They are also actively participating in stormwater recycling and reuse. Their main aim was to actively reduce the risk of floods and pollution migration in our urban environment due to the steadily rising impermeable fraction. In addition to providing fit-for-purpose water sources as an alternative to potable water supply, treatment of captured stormwater guarantees the dependability and sustainability of the water management in the area.
During the LWRP, Larsen Engineers also actively participated in the plantation of trees to reduce CO2 emissions and improve the overall aesthetics of the location. After all, scientists refer to trees as “carbon sinks” because as they grow, they absorb and store carbon from the air in their wood, plant material, and soil. Ultimately, trees significantly reduce our carbon footprint by absorbing a significant amount of carbon dioxide that would otherwise stay in the atmosphere.
As you can see, Larsen Engineers is doing its part in creating a more “green” and sustainable society. So, now is the time you do the same and give sustainable living a go. Hopefully, you’ll see the positive side of how living “green” can positively impact our environment and halt this abrupt and dangerous climate change!
