Mario José Molina-Pasquel Henríquez, Nobel Prize Winner

March 19, 1943 is the birthday of Mexican scientist Mario José Molina-Pasquel Henríquez, who was a co-recipient of the Noble Prize for Chemistry in 1995.  Henríquez is the first Mexican born scientist to achieve a Noble Prize in Chemistry.  Henríquez’s contribution is in the domain of climate change and the environment; he researched and proved the threat of chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs) to the earth’s ozone layer. (But please don’t tell President Trump that a Mexican scientist was a contributor in the confirmation of the impact of climate change.)
