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.

    The Great Lakes are an international treasure and should be protected as such.

    We’ve seen spills already from the supposedly safe Keystone pipeline. Michigan earns billions providing water to bottled water companies. Why risk that economic boon for a project whose safety record is seriously in question?

    Our elected officials are derelict of duty. They are putting the waters of the Great Lakes at risk. The risk is much greater than any benefit of maintaining this pipeline! Our members have traveled all over the state to deliver this message to various leaders. NO ONE is listening! Any wise leader will adopt renewable energy over fossil fuels! The acceleration of climate change is happening faster than was predicted. Scientist Jim Hansen said in ‘07 that 350 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere was the UPPER LIMIT of what’s safe to avoid climate catastrophe. We are already past 350 ppm. Climate denial is deadly! We MUST shut down Line 5!!!! and protect our health, air, ozone, and our Great Lakes!

    It is suicide for our state to let this pipeline go on. A pipeline break and leak like what happened in Kalamazoo will be disasterous to our tourist economy. Repair and maintain or decommission.

    The Great Lakes are far too precious. This pipeline endangerment must stop now.

    Great plan to head off a disastrous rupture in the pipeline.

    There will be no quick way to “fix” a spill in the straits area. Find another, safer way to move the oil. People- not profit – first in this endeavor.
