At the moment, no you can't eliminate it completely. But that doesn't mean you have to go overboard on waste either.
Stop driving gas guzzling vehicles when you don't need too. You don't need a Lincoln Navigator to go to the mall.
Get solar panels on your house.
Stop importing fruits and vegetables from South American and Asia. STop importing products from China. Pay a little more so it can be made American.
Just stop buying less crap in general.
Compost if you can.
Deal with the heat a little and don't turn on the AC, and then keep it on 65. STop building massive cities and farms in the desert.
Get rid of some golf courses.
Live near your work.
Employers need to embrace telecommuting more.
I could go on and on. It is one thing to use energy. But it is quite another to use it like there is an unlimited abundance of it.
