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.

    Line 5 needs to be decommissioned. Protect our natural resources.

    My family lived in Marshall MI during the large oil spill in 2010. We now live on Lake Michigan north of Harbor Springs and do not want to be subjected to another Enbridge pipeline rupture, but more importantly, want to help protect the greatest source of fresh water in the world.

    I would love to get involved, the Great Lakes are amazing, and I would hate to see anything bad happen.

    Any rational person knows that having an oil pipe line run through the Great Lakes is extremely dangerous and a HUGE disaster waiting to happen. PLEASE do the right thing and close the possibility BEFORE IT HAPPENS.

    As humanity we fail by doing/building/ believing that we do and create things for our “ease” pipeline 5 is another blunder. Same as radioactive energy/weapons, they are simply not logical to the earths survival.
