    By spreaading information, and by sites like this!  Through Greenanswers and many other places on the internet people are learning how to reduce, reuse, and recycle, and are more able to connect on a grassroots level than ever before.  Information technology has multiplied the spread of educational materials to the billionth degree, which enables people to learn how to live greener in a way they haven’t been able to before.  In addition, the Internet’s potential as an anecdote aggregator is likely going to be very useful.  Google already automatically documents searches by amount and geographic area, so if a ton of people in the midwest are searching for “honeybee invasion” or “bee infestation” it can clue us into natural phenomena that might not be connected otherwise, and give us a clue to how the climate is changing, when, where, and even more about the why.  Check out the link for more details on the Internet as an entity can be used to aggregate and identify environmental phenomena.
