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 good outcome as long as that pipeline exists under the greatest bodies of fresh water on earth….

    I am deeply worried about a Great Lakes public health water emergency when LIne 5 breaks. The only way to avoid this is to decommission Line 5 now.

    The risk of contamination of the Great Lakes is immanent. Please keep up the good work and keep the pressure on the State Officials. I can’t understand why they are content with taking Enbridge’s word as truth. Why are there no third party inspections? Why is the state not more in control of a company doing business on it’s land that is posing such a risk to our greatest resource?


    We have a responsibility to this generation and future generations to do the right thing. We have only once chance!
