With the world facing the worst ebola outbreak to date, 92Y speaks with Newsweek senior editor Elijah Wolfson about whether environmental factors are contributing to the spread of the disease.  Has industrialization made humans more likely to come into contact with an animal carrying the virus? And could warmer temperatures and rising sea levels put populations at risk for other epidemics?  Watch and then tell us what you think.
