Trump's stated position on climate change on Dec. 30, 2015, in Hilton Head, S.C.,
"Obama's talking about all of this with the global warming and … a lot of it's a hoax. It's a hoax. I mean, it's a money-making industry, OK? It's a hoax, a lot of it."
Donald Trump wants to build another huge wall, this time to keep out the rising seas threatening to swamp his luxury golf resort in Ireland.
The Republican presidential candidate has called climate change a ''con job'' and a ''hoax.'' But in an application filed this month in County Clare, Ireland, the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel cites the threat of global warming in seeking a permit to build a nearly two-mile-long stone wall between it and the Atlantic Ocean. The beach in front of the 18th green is disappearing at a rate of about a yard each year.
Trump's application, first reported Monday by Politico, cites local regulations pertaining to ''rising sea levels and increased storm frequency and wave energy associated with global warming.'' An attached environmental impact statement says that almost all the dunes in western Ireland are retreating ''due to sea level rise and increased Atlantic storminess.''
