Trump Seeks Governmental Help From Global Warming While Denying It Even Exists

Donald Trump has famously called global warming “a total hoax.”  But when it threatens one of his oceanfront golf courses, Trump sings a different tune.

Trump has also blamed the hoax on the Chinese.

But according to an application filed for permission to build a seawall to protect the coastline next to one of Trump’s golf courses, global warming is real. The application cites present and future erosion of the coastline due to extreme weather and rising ocean levels as reasons for the sea wall.

In other words, as goes the coastline, so goes Trump’s oceanfront golf course.

The application was filed by Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland, in County Clare, as cited by Ben Schreckinger on Politico.com.

While Trump denies the science as part of his political campaign, he recognizes how it affects his own private business interests.

The political rhetoric is designed to forestall government action on climate change, leaving only the wealthy prepared for the coming changes. That will give Trump’s course an advantage over other seaside resorts and golf courses that do not have protective sea walls.

Ironically, Trump needs to ask the Irish government to enable his own protection, while he argues against a coordinated, governmental plan to protect the rest of us.
