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 drinking water for 40 million people. He must act now to protect the Great Lakes from Enbridge's damaged, dangerous and old pipelines.

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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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 Enbridge was in violation of that easement from 1968 until it was revoked in 2020.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.

    I’ll never forget the sight and smell of my local Kalamazoo river running black with oil that had gushed from the Endbridge pipeline for 17 hours before being discovered and stopped, not to mention the years of the aftermath of that disaster. Shut down line 5

    We only live a few miles from Lake Huron and we get our drinking water from there. It already has chemicals that shouldn’t be in it and we certainly don’t need oil added to the rest!

    We need to stop building oil pipelines and endangering our water and land from leaks and spills, and instead start building more renewable energy sources
