Trump’s Proposed Wall Around Ireland – Revisited Because Of His Current Stance On The Paris Agreement

I want to remind you all of two earlier posts regarding the orange shit gibbon and global warming.

As you may know, one of my sons is a surfer dude. He is currently in the West Coast of the USA. I am in the midst (actually at the end of painting his room). I painted the crippled son’s room too. I went with an all white theme. That way you don’t don’t notice the splotches. Crippled son has already made black marks on the white wall. I don’t know why I bother.

Anyway, talking to surfer dude tonight, and we had such a  laugh.

USA’s presidential candidate Donald Trump wants to build a 200,000 tonne rock wall that would ‘destroy’ a picturesque beach and surf spot in Ireland in order to save his multi-million pound golf resort.

On the other-side of the world from Trump’s proposed wall between the USA and Mexico (yeah, that’s a real thing) his Ireland-based firm that runs beach-side Doonbeg Golf Resort in County Clare, is seeking planning permission to dump large boulders on Doughmore beach, creating a wall they hope will prevent erosion of the golf course there. The reverb from that sea wall could end up spoiling one of the best beach breaks in County Clare.

Ain’t gonna happen Donald, Ireland has more to do with its money than build a wall around your golf resort. The surfers will not allow it either!

And then…

Remember when I mentioned that Little Donnie wanted to build a wall around Ireland? Well, I exaggerated somewhat. He wants to build a sea wall to protect his golf course in County Clare which is on the west coast of Ireland. You will never guess the reason why he wants to build the wall – he wants to prevent erosion due to the effects of global warming.

Courtesy of Politico:

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.
A permit application for the wall, filed by Trump International Golf Links Ireland and reviewed by POLITICO, explicitly cites global warming and its consequences — increased erosion due to rising sea levels and extreme weather this century — as a chief justification for building the structure.
The zoning application raises further questions about how the billionaire developer would confront a risk he has publicly minimized but that has been identified as a defining challenge of this era by world leaders, global industry and the American military. His public disavowal of climate science at the same time he moves to secure his own holdings against the effects of climate change also illustrates the conflict between his political rhetoric and the realities of running a business with seaside assets in the 21st century…

…Trump’s company has warned not only the county council of the perils of climate change, but also local residents. An appendix to TIGL’s planning application includes a scan of a brochure that the company has distributed to residents to make the case for building the proposed coastal protection works. The heading of one page — emblazoned with a “Trump Doonbeg” logo — is “Need for Coastal Protection.” The page lists four bullet points, the last of which is, “Predicted sea level rise and more frequent storm events will increase the rate of erosion throughout the 21st century.”

So there you have it. Little Donnie is a big fat, lying hypocrite. He obviously believes in global warming. Well he did when a whopping great storm tore eight metres off the sand dunes in front of his golf course days before he signed the deal back in 2014 and he had to confront reality. But, he is not telling his rubes that.

Here is an interesting Facebook page dedicated to saving Doughmore – Doonbeg Beach. The “About” section reads as follows:

Donald Trump has applied for permission to dump 200’000 TONNE of boulders along 2.8kms of Doughmore’s sand beach. This page is trying to stop it.

It appears that he is not getting his way. That wall, like the one on the Mexican border will never see the light of day.🙂

Please spread this far and wide.

    I can think of a much more efficacious use of 200’000 TONNE of boulders. 😎
