Obama admin. releases major story on 12/24 re: EPA/Parker Co. TX

TX Sharon (who originally broke the story of Steve Lipsky)
has the scoop:

Hoping no one would notice, Obama picked noon on Christmas Eve to release the Inspector General (IG) report that justified the EPA's Imminent and Substantial Endangerment Order*  in the Range Resources' Parker County water contamination case.

The IG's in-depth investigation findings:
  • EPA was right to issue the order.
  • Withdrawal reasons are unclear and questionable.
  • Recommends monitoring of Range Resources' testing because the quality is questionable.


Also Ecowatch:

Here's the IG's report:
