The Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings deeply mourn the loss of Mario J. Molina, who was awarded with the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1995 for his research in Atmospheric Chemistry. His work had an important impact on the knowledge about the ozone hole.
This summer Mario J. Molina participated in the Online Science Days 2020 and enriched the debate “Communicating Climate Change”. From 1998 on he was six times in Lindau for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
The Council and Foundation extend their deep sympathies to Mario Molinas’ whole family.
