Climate change bankrupts Ploptoberfest organizer

The nonprofit group that puts together festivals like Covington's Oktoberfest is being forced to declare Chapter 7 bankruptcy - and it's because of all the little liars out there denying climate change.

MainStrasse Village Association - which organizes Covington events like Oktoberfest, Maifest, and Goettafest - says all 3 events this year were beset by bad weather, which in turn resulted in substantial losses of revenue for the organization. Losses at Oktoberfest alone were over $100,000. These losses have forced the nonprofit into bankruptcy - and puts the future of these festivals in doubt.

The organization had been solvent for 30 years - before climate change killed festival attendance. The owner of one shop said, "When it's cold and rainy, no one wants to walk around with a cold beer in their hand."

I think Fox News, ExxonMobil, and the rest of the climate change denial racket should be required to reimburse MainStrasse Village Association for the lost revenues.
