Caption: Mario Molina (b.1943), Mexican chemist. In the early 1970s Molina's postdoctoral work showed that CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) were destructive to the Earth's ozone layer. He and his colleagues held a press conference in 1974 calling for a complete ban on the use of these chemicals. However, it was several years before any action was taken. He shared the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for this work.Restrictions:
