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.

    I find it amazing that even responsible CEO’s, CFO’s, corporate directors would even risk huge law suits from a possible disaster from these type of ticking time bombs. Even the highly educated prove they were sleeping in school classes of their future occupational responsibility to their own fellow citizens. Amazing and disaster of any kind would definitely have adverse effects on border relations and lawyers would be in a shark frenzy on both sides$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ !

    We don’t live on the Lakes but definitely make use of them when we’re up there in this great God given wonders. Corporations with their evolving corporate leaders only worry about their shares and other niceties they receive when leaving on no matter the situation. It’s all about me and Hell with everybody else.

    In reading the five-step plan I find it weak. “Examine alternatives” can take years and years, meanwhile the pipeline can rupture. File legal action to enforce? Come on, the law is already there. Just DO IT. “A plan for the removal” ? Yah, I plan to be rich by next week but it ain’t gonna happen. The line needs to be closed NOW, not after five more years of study, maybe.

    This is a comprehensive and sensible plan for decommissioning Line 5 and its high time the Governor and Attorney General do their jobs as stewards of Michigans natural resources and adopt and implement this plan.
