Professor Connett has written a book on Zero Waste titled “The Zero Waste Solution” that was published in Italy in 2012 and in Europe and North America in 2013. Professor Paul Connett was the keynote speaker at the Zero Waste International Alliance’s 2014 annual Zero Waste Conference hosted by Zero Waste Canada and the good people of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. Former Professor of Chemistry Paul Connett’s environmental activism goes beyond his classes. Investigations into the scientific evidence against the practice of water fluoridation has become a family affair for the Connett household. His son Michael is the research director and Webmaster for the Fluoride Action Network, and his wife, Ellen, is also involved in researching the topic. All three presented scientific papers at the 26th Conference of the International Society for Fluoride Research, held in Wiesbaden, Germany. Paul Connett has received numerous awards and citations for his work and frequently participates in community discussions on fluoridation. A graduate of Cambridge University, Connett holds a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College and joined the faculty at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY in 1983. Connett’s opposition to incineration as a method of managing solid waste, based on his chemical analysis of the byproducts of the process, has taken him to 49 US states, five Canadian provinces, and 54 other countries. He has given over 2,000 public presentations, written many articles on dioxin and waste management and co-produced several videos on those topics, as a result of that research. Connett says that he has devoted a great deal of time and effort to grass-roots environmental organizations during his career, because “that is the place where we can affect genuine change.” Ralph Nader said of Paul Connett, “He is the only person I know who can make waste interesting.”
