I could use the same facts to make a case for total human control of the 
natural environment. Note that Ebola broke out in a place where there is no 
aadvanced technology in use whatever: no asbestos, no pesticides, no nuclear 
power, no Freon. This is a place where man lives in exactly the primitive 
no-technology state that environmentalists promote for us all.
