"radiation level" is an idiotic way to put it. General stupidity seems to triple ever few years now.

> "cesium levels"
is a wee bit less but still quite stupid -- WHICH Cs ? (134 and 137 come to my mind without having to consult my nuclide-chart) - and actually, it's more of a "specific activity" than "levels"

When things go wrong with nuclear power, it certainly has an extreme adverse effect on wildlife. Nuclear waste is certainly a problem as well.
