TAKE ACTION

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, old pipelines. Enbridge experts testified the pipeline has little impact on gas prices.

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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline, which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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

    Enbridge is a scofflaw, a contemptuous law violator. And Line 5 is a demonstrable danger to the Great Lakes. This travesty needs to end NOW.

    Urgent to stop the delivery of oil under the Great Lakes. This company has operated sending oil into the USA with out regard to Protection of Natural Resources the largest fresh water in North America needs to be protected.


    Governor Whitmer stood up against Embridge and they are throwing millions to courts to NOT be responsible.

    Their leak in our Kalamazoo River years ago..still has oil sludge residue in 2022.


    Once oil leaks into Great lakes it never recovers.


    It is time to protect the people’s rights to pure water .


    Let Em ridge build Refinery in Canada.

    That oil does not benefit USA.. if I’m to believe latest Republican Political Ad.

    It’s going to China..which is part of Russia and India joint agreement to not use US Currency as oil dollar.


    Let them truck it over the Mackinac Bridge..


    That creates jobs. We don’t have to keep making it EASIER for millionaires who have shown lobbyist money bought their passages.


    President Biden..NOW is the right time to Support The States of Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, New York

    And Atlantic Ocean to St Lawrence Seaway.to the world.


    Stop Line 5 ancient line laying on bottom..no tunnel..no more money to giveaway to an oil company Not providing any service to America.


    Stop the flow now I pray for our future children to enjoy this fresh water..
