Mario and the Hole in the Sky: How a Chemist Saved Our Planet 
by Elizabeth Rusch 

Mexican American Mario Molina is a modern-day hero who helped solve the ozone crisis of the 1980s. Growing up in Mexico City, Mario was a curious boy who studied hidden worlds through a microscope. As a young man in California, he discovered that CFCs, used in millions of refrigerators and spray cans, were tearing a hole in the earth's protective ozone layer. Mario knew the world had to be warned--and quickly. 

Congratulations Amelia P., you are our Win it Wednesday winner!
