Thursday, March 2, 2017

Science in its many disciplines is universal and diverse. It spans across all languages, continents, and cultures; notable contributors in its fields come from all corners of the globe. Although the U.S. is viewed worldwide as the global scientific research powerhouse thanks to generous funding of programs, education, and experimentation, the Latin American world has also been making incredible scientific strides for centuries. Latino culture has raised Nobel Prize winners, geniuses in environmental science, and quantum field theory game changers. Here are some brilliant Latin Science minds who have changed the way we understand the world:

Dr. Bernardo Houssay, Dr. Cesare Mansueto Giulio, Dr. Mario Molina, Dr. Adriana Ocampo, and Dr. José Sarukhán.

IN THE MEDIA

Trump lays plans to reverse Obama’s climate change legacy – New York Times

“The message they are sending to the rest of the world is that they don’t believe climate change is serious. It’s shocking to see such a degree of ignorance from the United States,” said Dr Mario J. Molina, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist from Mexico who advises nations on climate change policy.

“Just as there is no escaping gravity when one steps off a cliff, there is no escaping the warming that follows when we add extra carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to the atmosphere,” the scientists wrote. The group included Nobel laureate chemist Mario Molina of the University of California, San Diego, and eight members of the National Academies of Science.
