Several Colorado counties are pushing back against President Biden’s plan to lock up 30% of land and water and have passed resolutions opposing the Democrat’s “30 by 30” plan.
By putting a chunk of land twice the size of Texas off-limits to human use over the next nine years, Biden says it could maybe, probably have something to do with climate change.
Residents in Garfield, Grand, Moffat, Logan and Las Animas Counties aren’t buying it, Complete Colorado reports.
In a statement to Sky-Hi News Grand County Commissioner Merrit Linke, referring to last year’s East Troublesome forest fire said, “Preserving and protecting — the government does not have a good track record of doing those two things. The hands-off approach does not work, as evidenced by a 200,000 acre fire in Grand County last summer.”
The scheme would take private property by telling property owners, farmers and ranchers how to best take care of their land, which they’ve been doing for hundreds of years without the help of Washington bureaucrats.
The land doesn’t need any more so-called help from Washington, which is so polarized by politics when it comes to the environment they always end up doing more harm than good.
