An Irish golf course owned by Donald Trump, a climate change denier, has put in a planning application for a sea wall to protect against coastal erosion, citing changing weather as the reason. The US Republican presidential hopeful's Irish holding company TIGL Ireland Enterprises submitted the application earlier this month to build a £7.6 million (10.0 million euro, $11.2 million) rock barrier saying that storms had swept away sand dunes.
