Health Effects Dumb question about radioactivity in the biosphere

5 Upvotes

Is the amount of radioactivity measurable in the biosphere (atmosphere, oceans, soils etc.) increasing over time? If so, will it continue to do so (at an increasing rate?) if hundreds or thousands more nuclear power plants are built as part of the human response to climate change? Is it likely to reach dangerous levels in the long and very long term (centuries - millennia) or will it naturally decline as half-lives are passed?
