Potential for Profit or Disaster

Health Editor’s Note: A lake in Africa, Lake Kiva, is not like the usual deep lake because it does not have convection. Layers of cold and warm water do not mix in this lake which lays on the East African Rift Valley, where Africa is being slowly pulled apart by tectonic forces where volcanic activity increases.  This sets up a scenario for a potential huge explosion causing a deadly natural disaster for the area.
