Saving the world one Big Mac at a time

Tired of hearing stories about interns who just fetch coffee and photocopy?  Check out this story of an intern at McDonalds who figured out that by installing occupancy sensor for lighting in non-dining and non-kitchen areas in 775 company-owned restaurants in the U.S. they could cut approximately 2,993,000 kWh of electricity usage and avoid 1,799 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.  That sure beats picking up dry cleaning and making sure the office kitchen supplies are stocked!
