Sign this petition to urge President Biden to act to protect the Great Lakes and climate from the Enbridge Line 5 oil pipeline

SIGN THE PETITION

President BidenIt's time for President Biden to support Gov. Whitmer's Line 5 shutdown order. An oil spill from the Line 5 oil pipeline in the Great Lakes threatens the drinking water of 40 million people. An oil tunnel in 10 years, if it even ever gets built, is not a solution to this urgent threat. He must act now to protect the Great Lakes from Enbridge's damaged, dangerous and old pipelines. Don't let Big Oil use the crisis in Ukraine to keep Line 5 flowing.

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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline, which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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 Michigan. Enbridge violated that easement from 1968 until Governor Whitmer revoked it 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 start taking action on climate change. Please take these actions today.

    It’s a disaster waiting to happen. You can replace fossil fuel. You can’t replace water.
