The 30x30 Landgrab with Margaret Byfield

In this week's North American Ag Spotlight Chrissy Wozniak speaks with Margaret Byfield who serves as the Executive Director of American Stewards of Liberty, about the concerning trajectory of property rights regulation in the United States. She discusses the actions of the Biden Administration, the overreach of the administrative state, and what our part is in this fight.

30 x 30 is an international environmental agenda to permanently protect 30 percent of our land and oceans by 2030, in their natural state. It was initiated by the Biden Administration in the Climate Crisis EO (14008) signed January 27th, 2021.

Proponents argue that climate impacts are human-caused, and permanently preserving 30% of America’s land and oceans is necessary to reverse climate change. This action must be taken immediately, they claim, to avoid impacts on the ecosystem and wildlife. However, the science and data do not justify these extreme policy measures.

30 x 30 is an unconstitutional policy shift, moving us from a nation founded on private property principles to one controlled by the administrative state.

Margaret Byfield serves as the Executive Director of American Stewards of Liberty (ASL), and is a natural resource policy expert with over 30 years experience. Her education began on Pine Creek Ranch in Central Nevada where her family became one of the first Western landowners targeted by the radical environmental agenda resulting in the 27 year legal battle, Hage v. United States.

Byfield works directly with policy leaders at the local, State and Federal level helping to advance strategies that protect the production of America’s food, fiber, minerals and energy. She runs the national “Property Rights Task Force” and “Multiple-Use Alliance” that confront the agendas eroding property rights in America. She is a national speaker, writer and commentator on natural resource issues.

American Stewards of Liberty is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to protect property rights and the liberties they secure by defending the use of our land and restoring local control. American Stewards educate federal, state, and local officials and property owners, on federal actions that erode property rights, such as the 30x30 agenda, and identifies responses that bring these actions into alignment with full Constitutional protections of these rights.
