The long-term problems of radioactive contamination discussed in the FUSRAP Report are examples of the more general long-term radioactive contamination effects of nuclear power generation and nuclear weapons. The Chernobyl disaster and the Fukushima disaster have both left large areas of land which will be dangerously contaminated for many thousands of years. Nuclear power generation in general produces very long-lived radioactive waste products, and the problem of safe storage or disposal of these products has not been solved. The problem of radioactive contamination associated with nuclear weapons is greater still. A nuclear war would leave very large areas of the globe permanently uninhabitable, and would affect both belligerent and neutral countries.
