About this book

Chronicles the experiences of F Sherwood Rowland and Mario Molina, the scientists who first made the discovery and then tried to warn the world's leaders that the widespread release of CFCs into the earth's atmosphere was eating away at the ozone layer. The destructive character of these chemicals was first discovered in 1973; however, except for a ban on CFCs in aerosols in the late 1970s, warnings about the loss of the ozone layer went virtually unheeded until 1985, when the Antarctic hole was discovered. The book explores why it took so long for the world's leaders of government and industry to take the ozone problem seriously.
