Mario J. Molina (born March 19, 1943) is a Mexican chemist who won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1995. This was because, in the 1970s, he was one of the scientists who discovered that there was a hole in the ozone layer in the Earth's atmosphere. He is the first Mexican to receive the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Molina was one of 20 Nobel Laureates[1] who signed the "Stockholm memorandum" at the 3rd Nobel Laureate Symposium on Global Sustainability in Stockholm, Sweden on 18 May 2011.[2] Molina spearheaded a committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Science which released a stark report on global warming March 2014.[3]
