RE: Should we all limit our travel
Tricky question, it all depends where.

Ecologically sensitive areas should have limits on visitors, politically this will be difficult to implement but it has to be done before we love our wild places to death.

Non ecologically sensitive areas such as cities meh.

Yes, we should all limit our travel, not only because of over-crowded attractions but because of climate change. Until travel uses renewable energies, we should stop going so far.

Hike the Adirondacks.
Some beautiful areas in the back country and no waiting lines.
And at the height of the hiking season you can meet people from all over the US.
Leanto's for shelter are plentiful.

Plenty of resources here

If we're talking about land-based interstate travel for business, vacation and the like, we might just about be there.

The network of convenient, reasonably fast charging stations in the US has gotten pretty damn robust. Thanks to this and continuously improving mileage, we're already staring to hear accounts from from people who've vacationed on renewables without too much trouble.

There really needs to be a push to incentivize travelers to rent these things.
