Letter: Federal 30×30 conservation plan won’t benefit U.S.

According to available sources, the federal government currently owns 25-28% of the land mass in the U.S. That does not include state, county and local government lands. The entire idea of 30% of land being under government control/ownership while “private land ownership should be respected” is ludicrous. The vast majority of surface water is already government “owned,” so somebody is talking out of both sides of their mouth …

Do we really want the government
controlling/conserving/owning any more of our country? Look what a great job it has done with our forests.
