Nobel Prize winner warns severe global climate change

Xinhua - EnglishThe earth is still under grave threat of global warning caused by intensified fossil fuel use although the chlorofluoro carbons level in atmosphere had been dropping for the past 30 years, MarioJ. Molina, Nobel Prize Laureate in chemistry was quoted by BangkokPost newspaper as saying here on Thursday.

Mario won the prestigious prize in 1995 for the development of "CFC-ozone depletion theory," which found that continued release of CFCs into the atmosphere could lead to significant depletion ofozone layer, which shields the earth's surface from the damaging ultraviolet radiation from the sun.

He said the best way to cope with global warning is a shift of energy sources from fossil fuels to renewable energy, installationof carbon-capture technology in coal-fired power plants and development of energy-saving transport system.
