'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

General Motors Co. and Honda Motor Co. are joining forces to develop hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles.

The two companies said on Tuesday they plan to develop hydrogen storage and fuel-cell technologies by 2020.

Fuel-cell vehicles have electric motors that are powered by a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. The only byproducts are water vapor and heat, so there's no pollution. But the lack of infrastructure to transport and store liquid hydrogen has been a barrier to the cars' development.

GM and Honda have more than 1,200 fuel-cell patents between them, and both companies have experimental vehicle fleets.
