What Happened to the Nuclear Test Sites?

Nuclear bomb tests ended over 20 years ago but the legacy of the test areas still remains and will do for hundreds or thousands of years.
The IPPNW (International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War) estimate that by the year 2000 some 430,000 cancers were caused by atmospheric (above ground) nuclear bombs tests, from 1951 to 1962. (The Partial Test Ban Treaty of 1963 put a stop to above ground tests, fortunately.) Eventually, as many as 2.4 million deaths worldwide can be attributed to the nuclear fallout from atmospheric atomic blasts, according the IPPNW. It was a truly crazy time. Is the human species mad?
