The Washington Post was planning a hit piece on Alex Epstein, the author of the upcoming book Fossil Future: Why Global Human Flourishing Requires More Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas–Not Less.

The hit piece had nothing to do with the book — it was a personal attack on the author.

They dug up writing from when he was 19 — and falsely claimed he was racist.

Alex Epstein refuted the accusations:

It has now been several days since the “hit piece” was supposed to be published — and still no sign of it.

Epstein was asked if the article is still coming out – here was his response:

“We don’t know. It’s been almost two days since the article was supposed to come out. We know that they have defended themselves. We have no idea. I am so curious, it is such a bad idea to publish it. Like it’s so bad…It’s over guys. It has been refuted .”

Update: It’s 3 days since the Post’s hit-piece against me was supposed to run, and still nothing. (The author has written several pieces since.)

I’ve received overwhelming support.

Here’s a 10-minute summary of the story so far.

Have a great weekend!
