In the background, a very traditional Sicily, between the incompetence of the local police and an almost mafia-like «omertà» that keeps everyone silent. How is it possible for a little girl to disappear in broad daylight, under the gaze of relatives and neighbours? And, if someone saw, why has she remained silent for almost twenty years?

One offNUCLEAR NOW
As fossil fuels continue to cook the planet, the world is finally becoming forced to confront the influence of large oil companies and tactics that have enriched a small group of corporations and individuals for generations. Beneath our feet, Uranium atoms in the Earth’s crust hold incredibly concentrated energy- science unlocked this energy in the mid-20th century, first for bombs and then to power submarines and the United States led the effort to generate electricity from this new source. Yet in the mid-20th century as societies began the transition to nuclear power and away from fossil fuels, a long- term PR campaign to scare the public began, funded in large part by oil interests. This campaign would sow fear about harmless low-level radiation and create confusion between nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Looking squarely at the problem, Oliver shows us that knowledge is the antidote to fear, and our human ingenuity will allow us to solve the climate change crisis if we use it.
