Dear President Biden,

I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline which threatens our Great Lakes and climate:

  • Revoke the presidential permit for the Line 5 pipeline - the presidential permit is predicated upon Enbridge’s compliance with their easement agreement with the state of Michigan. Enbridge was in violation of that easement from 1968 until it was revoked in 2020.

...petition continues below.

  • File supportive briefs in the appropriate court of jurisdiction making it clear that Michigan has the authority to revoke the Line 5 easement and shut down the pipeline.
  • If any treaty negotiations occur between the United States and Canada, Michigan’s Tribal Governments, who have pre-existing treaty rights must be included directly in the negotiations.
  • Follow through on your global commitment at COP26 of a 45% reduction in fossil fuel use by 2030. Shuttering this operating pipeline is critical to spurring the Build Back Better transition to a clean energy economy. Future generations are counting on you.

This administration has a duty to protect our water and to start taking action on climate change. Please take these actions today.

    The Great Lakes contain 1/6th of the fresh water in the world. Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are the 2nd and 3rd largest. Any breach of the pipeline crossing the straits will cause catastrophic damage to fish and wildlife in both lakes depending on which way the current is flowing. Shut the line down before a calamity occurs.

    stop Enbridge and shut down line 5 and no tunnel. This pipeline only serves 3% of propane to the upper peninsula. Canada should have this pipeline go through their country NOT Michigan.
