Caption: Frank Sherwood Rowland (1927-2012), US chemist. Rowland is best known for his work that showed 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. Rowland shared the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Mario Molina and Paul Crutzen for this work.
