Journalist finds connection between Ebola epidemic and deforestation

The panic over Ebola has caused finger pointing in all kinds of directions: President Obama, hospital and airline employees, monkeys - you name it. But for journalist Janet Ginsburg, connecting the dots of this epidemic led to some interesting answers. She has found what she says is a direct link between mismanagement of natural resources and the latest Ebola outbreak. Janet is an award-winning writer, editor, producer, curator and photographer. She runs an editorial consultancy business called ARC. Janet joins us to explain why she thinks the spread of Ebola is linked to deforestation.
