Dear Mr. President:

Considering your position as Representative of a Great Nation, sensitive and concerned about International Cooperation, allow me to respectfully request your support to the idea of rendering a “World Tribute to Dr. Frank Sherwood Rowland”, this next September 16 on the occasion of the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer”.

This homage will include a message making reference to the International Day and Dr. Rowland’s key role in contributing to science and to the protection of life on our planet, paving the way to the “Montreal Protocol” that was the source of inspiration for the establishment of the “International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer”.

Dr. Rowland passed away last March 10 and deserves to be recalled as a Benefactor of Mankind”.

Dr. Rowland and Dr. Mario Molina published in “Nature” on June 28, 1974 their study on the destruction of the ozone layer, giving a timely warning against a paramount catastrophic event.

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1995 was awarded jointly to Paul J. Crutzen, Mario J. Molina and F. Sherwood Rowland for their extraordinary contribution to science in defense for life on our planet.

Allow me to express my gratitude to the Embassy of the United States of America in Caracas for kindly forwarding this letter to you.

Thank you for your kindness and your interest.

Erik, Environmentalist
Promoter of the creation of the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, approved by the United Nations General Assembly (Resolution 49/114, dated 23/01/95) September 16 .
