About this event


Climate Change: Science and Policy Lecture

Mario Molina, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 1995, shares the inspirational story of his scientific discoveries and his path to receiving the Nobel Prize – and beyond. 
Dr. Molina played a pivotal role in the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole, and is the first Mexican-born recipient of a Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He shared the 1995 Chemistry Prize for his work revealing the threat of chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs) to the Earth's ozone layer, and has served on advisory boards such as the US President's Committee of Advisors in Science and Technology.
A question and answer session will follow Dr. Molina's talk; refreshments will be provided.
