Miami, FL – Who but the thinking impaired can ignore the prevailing headlines and reams of dire predictions that claim our world is imploding? Are we destined to live in a dystopian future? A future described by the prescient poet T.S. Eliot, that predicts ‘This is the way the world ends, this is the way the world end’s, not with a bang …….but a whimper‘. Or as twenty-nine year old sound engineer, composer and social media guru, Giovanni Benjamin wonders out loud, “if we are going to smother ourselves in our own filth?”.
In order to feed our insatiable addiction for fossil fuel energy, the current administration’s executive order required federal agencies to annul policies that protected for over a century our National Parks and verdant land and sea reserves.
The impact caused by the miss management of the planet’s finite resources is no longer a matter of conjecture but of hard-boiled facts. One energy crisis or another, has shadowed most of the last five decades. The OPEC crunch of the 70’s to sky rocketing gas prices in the oil rich Persian Gulf, Nigeria and Venezuela have exacted tolls that include countless civilian casualties. The decimation of natural habitats have given way to perceptible seawater rise and off the charts climate disruption.
The drilling and fracking of untapped tar sands and oil shale, the spewing emissions of carbon dioxide into the air we breathe, discarded plastic creating oceananic wastelands three times the size of Texas, melting glaciers and unbearable heat waves, we are witnessing in real time a perceptible rise in planetary anguish and spiral down of public confidence.
The evidence that humankind may go the way of a dinosaur’s blink may be irrefutable. Or not?
As the planet’s biodiversity is being depleted by one more short sighted policy there is a conscious awakening that insists protecting our planet has become our species highest priority,” says Victor Roman, a Consultant working with Alexander Capital’s Lead Investment Banker, Daniel Cannon, to promote and fund QCI’s Recycling Plants. “We are passionately committed to providing game-changing solutions for several of the world’s largest pollution problems“. QCI’s group of companies invented the only true clean, sustainable patented and proprietary solution for this global problem forever. “This is not just a pipe dream, the plants are up and running with investments being sought to scale their evolutionary recycling process. Our ability to provide the best sustainability solutions for today’s world allows us to be zero-landfill capable with a zero-carbon footprint. Simply said we are capable of recycling and harvesting every bit of trash down to its molecular level, for a zero sum waste equation,” says Victor Roman from his post in Southern California.
Define – Build – Ignite – Be the Hero of Your Story – Science Like Love Has An Inner Meaning

Miami/FL It was at the opening of the 1936 New York World’s Fair on a blustery stormy night that keynote speaker, Albert Einstein, an iconic celebrity due to his discovery of new physical realities on the grandest scale, stepped up to the microphone. He spoke against a backdrop of the largest flash of artificial light in history. A blinding explosion composed of contained cosmic rays radiated in a 40-mile radius. To paraphrase Einstein said, “If science, like art, is to perform its mission, its achievements must not enter the realm of elitist jargon. Science, like love, has an inner meaning and must enter into the consciousness and heart of all people.” Replace the word ‘science’ with ‘technology’ and the same sentiment applies today in harnessing the means to build a better planet of all.
With the species of insatiable ‘Wall Street Dinosaurs’ on the endangered species list it has become indisputably clear we cannot live without – air – water – safe habitats for all living creatures or an abundant food supply. These are the things that sustain the fabric of life and a future on the planet Earth. The dubious pleasure derived from short term convenience, the amassing of obscene wealth, and the acquisition of throwaway goods pales in comparison with the specter we are facing as a species.
It was Marshall McLuhan, who coined the term ‘global village’ in 1964. In his ground breaking book ‘Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man’ the author proposed that the media, not the content that it carries, should be the focus. The media IS the message’ and ‘social’ media whether Facebook™, Instagram™, texting, or TicToc is seamless, omnipresent and allows its users to hide in plain sight. Witness the media’s power to fan the flames of a global mass hysteria. From the top down the power elite has imposed a virulent form of martial law behind the guise of public safety. One can only imagine that , if we the people, would harness our collective voice and stand up to fear and greed mongering we can alter the future.
Combine the ubiquity of global online communication with ease of travel, simultaneous translation software and the urgency of reversing destructive trends we have the power to link up our global village in real time. For the first time since our days as cave dwellers our species possesses the freedom and power to understand science and technology, like love, as a path to transcendence.
“There is a movement in play to address climate change as something deeper than [justice], it’s about solidarity” says Bill McKeebin —an American environmentalist, author, and journalist. For the first time in history the ‘media’ confers on us the real possibility of global ‘Human solidarity’ !
Ours is a voice that has the resonance to reach a collective crescendo. Where an open dialogue about building a better world crosses borders, social and economic strata and cultural diversity at mach speed. In terms of pleasure and living the “dolce vita” what is the difference between the uber wealthy whose measure of self worth is in obscene displays of automotive superiority or a sustainable Nissan Leaf ™ or a chauffeured Uber™ ride? They all get us from point ‘A’ to ‘D’ (destination) , with the two latter conveyances coming at you guilt free.
From Detroit to New Delhi and beyond we are witnessing the emergence of a unified global soul searching. There is a full scale reckoning of our place on this planet and in the universe where only love makes this vast emptiness bearable”, suggests Fraser Austin of dot.community, “We are what we live. Let’s try something new: The haves and…the haves.”
