The article highlights the Early Signs: How Global Warming Affects Commerce, Culture and Community seminar and workshop at the University of California in Berkeley on September 1, 2005. Journalists who participated in the seminar and workshop were asked to find stories in which global warming would be explored in human terms. The primary premise of the class was based on the scientific consensus that human activity is a contributing factor to global warming. The participants' task was to combine study of the science, politics, economics, and social impacts of global warming with active news story developments in regions such as South America, South Pacific and Africa.
