Abstract

The health effects caused by pollution released into the environment is a continual problem facing the survival of sensitive species on our planet. Even though legislation regulates energy industries in many countries, the continual release of pollutants, such as heavy metal accumulation and persistent organic pollutants, are impacting climate change which will lead to social and cultural changes. These changes will continue to negatively impact both regional and global environments. There is a need for a combination of a One Health ecosystem interdisciplinary approach with an Environmental Justice ethic in order to maintain our ecosystems and the communities which they support at optimal health levels globally.
