time-for-this-to-go.jpgEndless studies, backroom deals, and inaction from state leaders do not protect the Great Lakes from a Line 5 oil spill. We know enough to know that a spill from a pipeline operated by a foreign corporation with a questionable track record would do irreparable harm to Michigan's citizens, tourism, and our blue economy.

Take Action Now and Endorse the Oil & Water Don't Mix Plan to Decommission Line 5

Help us make this stick! We need thousands of endorsements of this plan to show the powers that be that there is a way to take real action now to prevent disaster.

Make a difference this election year. Let's compel candidates and current leaders to act with the knowledge that thousands support a plan that can actually work.

The Five Step Plan to Decommission Line 5

These are the highlights. Read the complete plan here.

  1. The Attorney General or Governor immediately files a legal action against Enbridge to enforce ongoing violations of the Easement Agreement pursuant to public trust law.
  2. Governor Snyder directs the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) to examine alternatives for providing propane to the Upper Peninsula.
  3. Governor Snyder directs the MPSC to examine alternatives for transport of light crude oil produced in northern Michigan to refining operations.
  4. MPSC moves forward with alternatives to meet Michigan’s needs.
  5. Line 5 is disassembled and removed from the Straits and state has a plan for the removal of the rest of Line 5.

    I am a concerned citizen of Michigan. I love my Great Lakes and I want them to be saved as soon as possible. Shut down Line 5!

    I cannot believe that we are risking the health of the largest body of fresh waters in the world….if there were a leak it would be a catastrophe and there is no agency or company who would be able to remedy it.

    It’s past time for this to go! We are incredibly fortunate to have not yet faced a disaster of epic proportion and lifelong implications.

    It looks like Enbridge is set to out-wait all attempts of the State of Michigan to shut down Line 5. Gov. Snyder’s side deal, involving expensive and unlikely “tunnels” for the line, is another attempt to divert attention from shutting down the lines. The citizens of Michigan must act if our elected and appointed representatives fail to do so.

    Great plan but Bill Shuette must endorse this plan or it won’t succeed.

    Need propane companies submit bids for UP business.

    Bids are needed asap for lowest costs with no interruption in services.
