    Hi there,


    I work with Great Lakes Commons, a project to envision and protect the Great Lakes as a living, thriving commons that we all care for in perpetuity. We are inspired by your work to keep oil out of the Great Lakes and are interested in actively working with the Oil & Water Don’t Mix coalition. Please let us know how we can become an active member of the coalition? You can learn more about our approach at greatlakescommons.org. Thanks very much and looking forward to hearing from you.

    Questions: 1) Are both lines Grade B , x52 wall strength? 2) Were girth welds 100% xrayed or randomly selected in 1953, and can record of radiographic history be subpeoned or obtained via some contractor record? 3) The pipeline marker on your home page sort of defeats the silly notion that the exact location can not be disclosed because of the potential for terrorist activity—can I be sent a picture of this at John McLane 18823 Taft Rd; Big Rapids, MI 49307? Thanks!

    The oil pipeline at the Mackinaw Straits is sixty years old. An oil spill could cause serious damage to our magnificent lakes. If there’ a chance to prevent this tragedy from occurring, I would like to participate in the action. Enbridge seems to have a poor track record.

    Hello, I’m part of a small theatre ensemble called Children of the Wild (www.childrenofthewild.org) currently looking for partners around the Great Lakes to work with in connecting live performance and environmental action to protect the water masses of the entire Great Lakes region. For the last six months, we’ve been developing a theatre piece that will tour the Great Lakes in 2016, and are presently scouting around the Lakes for possible performance sites and critical stories to share. Our current work is intertwining with the Great Lakes Commons Charter and Riverkeeper. We would similarly love to connect with Oil & Water Don’t Mix. Please let me know if there is someone I could speak with! Thanks, Lindsay (917) 605-2572; [email protected]

    I support the cause of protecting our water. I wish your promotional video showed more than just white people enjoying it.

    Dear OWDM,


    i Thought you might find this New York Times story (see link below) of interest.


    In light of this information, how can Bill Schuette continue to serve as co-chair of the Michigan Petroleum Pipeline Taskforce Committee? This is a real conflict of interest. He should step down from that position. The NYT article also lists him as among the top 10 attorneys general to receive donations from energy companies. With this in mind, it’s obvious that Schuette cannot make objective decisions when it comes to Michigan’s energy and pipeline related matters.


    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/07/us/politics/energy-firms-in-secretive-alliance-with-attorneys-general.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news


    Keep up the great work!


    Regards,

    Steve Krause

    Troy, MI

    (PS; I have also written to Gov. Snyder and Schuette about this)
