Authorities in Ireland have given President Donald Trump permission to build a seawall at his golf course on the west coast of the country.
Thirty-meter waves and driving rain have been eroding his coastal golf resort in Doonbeg, west Ireland.
Now The Trump International Golf Links Doonbeg, owned by the Trump Organization, has permission from the local council for two sea barriers of 630 meters and 260 meters in length.
Opponents have four weeks to appeal the decision, said Clare County Council in a statement.
The U.S. president has personally expressed doubts over the effects of climate change but the original application for the wall cited global warming and rising seas as a reason for needing the wall.
Trump invested a reported 15 million euros ($20 million) back in February 2014 for the golf resort, which the application highlights has the ambition to one day host the Irish Open.
But, alongside the receding coastline, the real estate mogul has had to deal with plans to build wind turbines in close proximity and an endangered microscopic snail that needs preservation and constant surveillance.
A quick fix solution to his resort falling into the sea — dumping tons of rocks on the site — in 2014 led to Trump coming head-to-head with local authorities, who served him with an enforcement notice. He then had a plan involving metal bars into the edge of dunes, which would allow the sand to naturally form once more. This, however, never saw the light of day.
Trump's other European golf course, in Scotland, is also causing local concern. In November, ecologists said they expected sand dunes there to lose conservation protection status because of president’s $1.3 billion dollar development.
