Karl Frankton is a pathologist with a CDC team in Somalia. For two days, they have tried to isolate a virus that has wiped out a village on the Wabe-Shebele River.

The warning is clear: "We're approaching an ecological disaster beyond our comprehension. While world governments look the other way, we are poisoning our air and water, and time just ran out."
