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.

    Being born and raised in Michigan, a member of the Sault Ste Marie Chippewa Tribe, and a current resident of Chicago (which borders on and gets its drinking water from Lake Michigan), the health of the Great Lakes is of supreme importance to me. The continued threat to our water, our industries, our wildlife and our PEOPLE to enrich a Canadian oil company is UNACCEPTABLE. There is NO EXCUSE for this pipeline to be allowed to continue to threaten us all. The only reason it still operates is GREED by politicians in Lansing who have been BRIBED by Big Oil. They and their pipeline need to go NOW.

    The cost of the proposed plan is negligible compared to the damage a spill would do. Think about it!

    Shut down line 5 now before it springs a leak. Just envision the Kalamazoo River crisis in the Straits of Mackinaw. It would be 10 times worse, and they are still cleaning up Kalamazoo 8 years later!!!
