Why did he win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry

- Mario Molina won 1/3 of the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1995
- He won it for coming up with the "CFC- Ozone depletion theory"
- The "CFC- Ozone depletion theory" was saying that when the CFCs mix with the atmosphere they can create a hole in the atmosphere it let the UV rays come through. Then once the UV rays get into the atmosphere they can't get out, like the greenhouse effect.
