A permit application for a sea wall around one of Donald Trump's golf courses explicitly names global warming as a reason to build the wall.

Donald Trump says he is “not a big believer in global warming.” He has called it “a total hoax,” “bullshit” and “pseudoscience.”

But he is also trying to build a sea wall designed to protect one of his golf courses from “global warming and its effects.”

The New York billionaire is applying for permission to erect a coastal protection works to prevent erosion at his seaside golf resort, Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland, in County Clare.

The climate has always been and always be naturally cyclical. There's nothing we can do to alter that. We can't keep the earth in one particular cycle or roll it back to a past one. We can't change it.

Understanding that doesn't mean one believes in the hoax of man made climate change.
