Parts One -Four of an update on how the viral idea started by “The Most Terrifying Video You’ll Ever See” and beefed up in the “How It All Ends” video project is progressing. “Operation Saturation” contains some really BAD news, and some really GOOD news. Which do you want first? Well, here’s what you’re going to get, in four parts:

Part 1: “THINGS LOOK REALLY LOUSY.” Some SERIOUS doom and gloom. Yucky, yucky, yucky–but it’s not in your interest to look away.
Part 2: “CAN WE FIX IT? YES! WE! CAN!” The GOOD news–it looks like we’ve accomplished a “proof of concept” that we CAN change the world by spreading this idea of looking at the risk instead of the certainty! Awesome!
Part 3: “HERE’S HOW” Your mission, with detailed instructions. THIS is how you save the world (or–more pertinently–our collective hide)!
Part 4: “GET ‘ER DONE!” Even more strategies, most quite easy, most with great potential to multiply awareness.
