NEPA SUSTAINABILITYOne of NEPA’s declared purposes is “to promote efforts which will prevent or eliminate damage to the environment and biosphere and stimulate the health and welfare of man.” We believe that with increasing world population there will be a further increase in natural resource depletion and habitat destruction.
We also believe that human-induced climate change is beyond dispute.
We must monitor and adapt to the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide and radiative forcing. NEPA analyses must now consider these facts in a meaningful way in light of its purposes and the problems we face. Climate change analyses under NEPA will severely test our commitment to operating in a sustainable fashion.
Enviro-Limit’s NEPA consulting practice understands how climate change will affect our lives and the importance of finding sustainable alternatives.
