Boom-chucka-lucka-lucka; +30 years

Chernobyl Unit 4 blew up 30 years ago. The nearest city, Pripyat, home to 50,000 people, was hurriedly abandoned. A thousand square miles, home to 120,000 people, had to be evacuated and which may be uninhabitable for the next 20,000 years. By default, the "exclusion zone" has turned into a thriving wildlife park.

I've heard a spitball idea about disposing of nuclear waste in rainforests. The radiation is bad for *individuals* but not life. It would also help fight the disastrous deforestation. Two problems with the same glowing stone.

By thriving you mean "habitat zone to glowing radioactive mutant razorbacks fighting 50-foot earthworms in an epic battle of nature."

It really says something about us that the wildlife will do better in damaging radiation than with us around.
