time-for-this-to-go.jpgEndless studies, backroom deals, and findings about the unconstitutionality of the tunnel law do not protect the Great Lakes from a Line 5 oil spill. 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 now. Let's compel our 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 Whitmer directs the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) to examine alternatives for providing propane to the Upper Peninsula.
  3. Governor Whitmer 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.

    There is no valid reason NOT to remove Line Five. It is simply a man-made disaster waiting to happen, continuously.

    Please be honorable and do the right thing. The health of an irreplaceable environment is in your hands. It will affect generations to come. You know what is the right thing to do..do not cave to political pressure. Be honorable and strong..stand up for the best solution ..which is NOT oil shooting thru thru pipelines which WILL fail at some point for future generations to deal with. Be honorable and strong..do the BEST thing for the long term . Do not cave to outside pressure.

    To leave a 64 yo oil pipeline that has a 50 yo life in place is not only sheer stupidity, it’s unbridled greed. Yet Enbridge claims on its web site to “support the environment by considering the short and long term environmental impacts before proceeding with ANY activity and to consistently strive towards a neutral footprint on the environment.”

    That might sound great to potential investors, but as we know it’s a damn lie. If they won’t do the right thing and replace/move that pipe, then sue them.

You can help now.
