Making a will is a significant matter, worth serious thought. Happily, however, writing your will does not have to be difficult, and most people don't need a lawyer to do it. Nolo has been helping people make their own legally valid wills for more than 25 years, and Nolo's Simple Will Book, remains one of our most popular estate planning books--for good reason. It has clear, easy-to-understand instructions, and it explains when you might need a lawyer's help. The wills in this book are legal in every state except Louisiana (which has its own set of estate planning laws that differs from all other states'). These wills are fine for most folks with a modest to moderate amount of property and typical assets. If you have a more complicated situation, or a large estate--say, more than $2 million--you will probably want some additional help from a lawyer or tax expert.

Considers the prospects for a resumption in growth of nuclear power in the US over the next decade, examining its acceptability to five sectors in the US: the financial sector, the regulatory sector, the political sector, the knowledgeable "involved public", and the general "uninvolved public".
Nuclear power is not clean, cheap, or safe. With Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima, the nuclear industry's record of catastrophic failures now averages one major disaster every decade. After three US-designed plants exploded in Japan, many countries moved to abandon reactors for renewables. In the United States, however, powerful corporations and a compliant government still defend nuclear power-while promising billion-dollar bailouts to operators. Each new disaster demonstrates that the nuclear industry and governments lie to "avoid panic," to preserve the myth of "safe, clean" nuclear power, and to sustain government subsidies. Tokyo and Washington both covered up Fukushima's radiation risks and-when confronted with damning evidence-simply raised the levels of "acceptable" risk to match the greater levels of exposure. Nuclear Roulettedismantles the core arguments behind the nuclear-industrial complex's "Nuclear Renaissance. " While some critiques are familiar-nuclear power is too costly, too dangerous, and too unstable-others are surprising:Nuclear Rouletteexposes historic links to nuclear weapons, impacts on Indigenous lands and lives, and the ways in which the Nuclear Regulatory Commission too often takes its lead from industry, rewriting rules to keep failing plants in compliance. Nuclear Roulettecites NRC records showing how corporations routinely defer maintenance and lists resulting "near-misses" in the US, which average more than one per month. Nuclear Roulettechronicles the problems of aging reactors, uncovers the costly challenge of decommissioning, explores the industry's greatest seismic risks-not on California's quake-prone coast but in the Midwest and Southeast-and explains how solar flares could black out power grids, causing the world's 400-plus reactors to self-destruct. This powerful exposé concludes with a roundup of proven and potential energy solutions that can replace nuclear technology with a "Renewable Renaissance," combined with conservation programs that can cleanse the air, and cool the planet.
