A right-wing, anti-federal lands group is leading a disinformation campaign against the Biden administration’s effort to protect 30% of America’s lands and oceans by 2030.

The “30×30” initiative aims to combat the dual climate and extinction crises and is backed by scientists, environmental groups and hundreds of state and local leaders. President Joe Biden set the national target in January, part of a rash of early environmental executive orders.


Rather than addressing the climate threat and protecting landscapes for future generations, Republicans “are siding with extremists hellbent on lining their own pockets at the expense of taxpayers and our environment,” said Kyle Herrig, president of watchdog group Accountable.US.
