Plus, there is life within the Chernobyl zones, a lot of it. Just because humans may not survive a large nuclear accident, doesn't mean other things won't. And much of the radiation actually decays very quickly, much more quickly than a thousand years or more. It's called "adaptation".

Nice little update on Fukushima. There is no question that daily contamination of the Ocean is at least 300 tons and may be as high as 1000 tons. Don't eat fish from the Pacific. That would be an over reaction today, but perhaps not tomorrow. Every Nuclear Reactor is located on a major water source because of the massive cooling needs. The Mainstream Media is not doing their job informing the citizens of the truth of the seriousness of this incident and the same potential for disaster throughout this gov't subsidized industry. We don't need nukes as long as the sun shines.
Experts Fear Fukushima Leaks Sending Radioactive Water Into the Pacific - Truthdig
"About 1,000 tons of underground water from the mountains flows into the plant compound each day, of which 400 tons seep into the reactor and turbine basements and get contaminated. The remaining 600 avoids that area, but at least half of it is believed to eventually come in contact with contamination elsewhere before entering the sea, according to an estimate by Japan’s Agency for Natural Resources and Energy."
