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 grew up on the shores of the straits of Mackinac, next to the pipeline, in the middle of the wetlands and bald eagle habitat. I have worked in high tech for 32 years and expect to retire on the shores I grew up on. The risk-reward ratio is simply non tolerable. It’s time to remove the pipeline permanently from the world’s largest collection of of clean fresh water. A tunnel is a bad idea and will cause irreparable harm to the environment as well no foreign corporation should ever be in a position to impose eminent domain uoon our citizens. It’s time for the pipeline to go.

    Not a organization. Just a citizen that doesn’t want their drinking water polluted.

    Hopefully our newly elected Governor will be environmentally concerned. Please take Snyder’s name out of your proposal.

    We cannot afford to allow this pipeline to continue. It is only a matter of time before it fails. Lets be proactive and protect one of the largest sources of fresh water in the world.
