Bakersfield, California, number two for ozone pollution, also maintained its position as the city with the worst short-term particle pollution.Los Angeles:California has the most polluted cities in the United States, a report issued on Wednesday said, as President Donald Trump's administration seeks to force the state to weaken its vehicle emissions standards.

The American Lung Association released the latest data from air quality monitors set up in the Hudson Valley, and it's not good news.

Stockton was locked into a tie for 10th place for the worst year-round particulate pollution with Cleveland, Ohio - once famed for pollution so bad that the Cuyahoga River running through the community once caught fire from massive industrial runoff.

The unhealthy days do not represent that the source of the pollution originates in that specific county.

The prosecutors did not release the names of those suspected. "The third accused no longer works for Porsche", prosecutors said. Moreover, two Audi sites in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm were also searched by the German police.

But while the hot weather can be blamed for the uptick in ozone concentration, "if the pollution wasn't being put in the air" then the air quality would still be better, he said.
