the meltdown of the chrenobyle(i know that isn't spelled right) nuclear power plant. the area is still uninhabitable and highly radioactive

This answer is just silly:

1) Genocide in China (1948-1976)

2) Genocide in the Soviet Union

3) Genocide in Cambodia

4) Holocaust

Just these four make Chernobyl look like a sunny day in the park.
