The Fresno Bee reports on increasing smog in the San Joaquin Valley. Some of the major findings are that as Los Angeles air gets cleaner, the Valley's smog problem is worsening; state and federal officials have failed to pay attention to the pollution in the area; polluting vehicles and diesel engines are common in the Valley; agricultural businesses are exempted from air pollution permits; small-particle pollution, connected to high death rates nationwide, presents an even bigger problem than the smog.
