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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline, which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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

    Shalom,


    I am a servant of Lord Yahweh(God) Almighty and the Most High Yahweh in heaven, Lord Jesus Christ who is Yahweh’s son and the Messiah or the Anointed One and the Holy Spirit. Lord Yahweh knows that every time a company drills for oil, it throws the Earth off balance. The more digging is done to the Earth. The more Earth is thrown off balance. Now, the Earth is out of balance. Earthquakes, flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes and dryness to Earth; will cause fires and will keep increasing their force. I am a believer in Lord Yahweh and Lord Jesus. I have been a believer early in life. Do you even care about Earth? Do you even care that your Soul will enter Hell? Do you even care about your love ones? We all will leave the Earth when it is our time. One day Lord Yahweh will tell his son Lord Jesus, it is time to return Earth. Will you be ready? I am afraid you will not understand what I have just said until you die off this Earth. Thank you for taking the time to read my comments.


    Truly
