This article reports on the regulation made by the Central Valley of California to clean up the area's dirty air, targeting cars, trucks and cow burps. Now it is prepared to lower the boom on more than 100 wineries in the San Joaquim Valley. Wineries allow ethanol in wine to escape as a gas during fermentation, and this adds to the ozone problems in the valley.
