“Typical of an engineer, he always wanted to solve through science, the real problems society was facing. His desire to come back to Mexico, the country where he was born and studied chemical engineering was always present. This is how the Mario Molina Center for Strategic Studies on Energy and the Environment came to be in 2005. Armed with profound scientific knowledge, great prestige and willingness to influence public and private policy, he lead this Center for 15 years carrying our research, studies and policy proposals to solve problems on air quality, climate change and sustainable development in Mexico. His humanity, his love for science, his genuine interest in society´s wellbeing, and his astounding optimism were all fundamental ingredients to his success. Thank you Mario for your friendship, your teachings and your confidence, FARE WELL.” -Carlos Mena Brito, dear friend to Mario and Executive Director of the Mario Molina Center
