In this June 23, 2017 photo, trains are lined up near a section of Highway 99 in Fresno, Calif. California’s vast San Joaquin Valley, the country’s most productive farming region, is engulfed by some of the nation’s dirtiest skies, forcing the state’s largest air district to spend more than $40 billion in the past quarter-century to enforce hundreds of stringent pollution rules. The investment has steadily driven down the number of days with unhealthy air - but on hot, windless days, a brown haze still hangs overhead, sending wheezing people with tight chests to emergency rooms and hundreds each year to an early grave.

A human rights complaint has been filed on behalf of foreign fishermen working in Hawaii's longline fishing fleet. Turtle Island Restoration Network told The Associated Press on Thursday, July 20, 2017, that they filed the complaint last week with the Inter-American Human Rights Commission. It asks the commission to investigate conditions among foreign workers in the U.S. fishing fleet.

The fleet catches $110 million worth of luxury seafood annually. (AP Photo/Caleb Jones, File)
