Dr. Mario Molina took part of “24 Hours of Reality” by Ex-President Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project. Over 24 hours leaders, scientists, academics, government and social representatives offered interviews to learn more about how fossil fuels and climate change are creating unique health risks that threaten the wellness of families and communities all over the world.
In one of the videos that Elías Ayub shares on his social networks, Mario Molina is seen with the businessman.

Today, he noted, we run the risk that large parts of the habitable planet become uninhabitable . Heat waves and forest fires are only, he stressed, yellow flashes of what will happen on a large scale
Experts from Ricardo, a global energy and environment consultancy, are leading an international consortium to support the Mexican government’s plan to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) in the freight transport sector.
