Google invited students to use Google Docs & Spreadsheets* to come up with ideas for combating global warming. One of the ideas makes it as full-page ad in today’s USA Today [PDF], Google says. Among the ideas:

  • “Require companies to limit the amount of packaging an item can have and it must be recyclable.”
  • “Teach recycling techniques in classes and school-wide programs.”
  • “Put light sensors in all office and school buildings so all lights go off when the rooms are empty.”
  • “Unplug all electronics from the wall when they’re not in use.”
  • “Use solar panels in the construction of new homes and office buildings.”
  • “Use less electricity, turn off the TV, read books, walk, run, bike, surf, play tennis.”
  • “Enforce laws about littering.”

On a related note, An Inconvenient Truth has been released on DVD.
