Sign this petition to urge President Biden to act to protect the Great Lakes and climate from America's Most Dangerous Pipeline

SIGN THE PETITION

President BidenIt's time for President Biden to revoke the presidential pipeline permit and shut down the Enbridge Line 5 crude oil pipeline. An oil spill from this unnecessary pipeline in the Great Lakes threatens the drinking water of 40 million people. If it ever gets built, an oil tunnel in 10 years 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, and other independent reports attest that a pipeline shutdown would have little impact on energy 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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline, which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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.
  • Prevent improper use of the 1977 Transit Pipeline Treaty with Canada - Canadian attempts to keep Line 5 operating by invoking the Treaty are ill-founded and disingenuous. The 4th article of the treaty allows the exact kind of conduct to protect the environment and public trust resources pursued by Governor Whitmer and the Bad River Band.
  • Follow the global commitment of COP28 to begin transitioning away from fossil fuels. Future generations are counting on you.

This administration must protect our water and start taking action on climate change. Please take these actions today.

    As resident of Kalamazoo, Mi, and an angler on the Kalamazoo River, I know the threat Enbtidge pipelines

    can have on water quality. This.company has proven untrustworthy when it comes to protecting our nations waterways. in 2008 we endured the worst oil spill on The Kalamazoo river, including any river in the United States, in our nations history, and we have suffered the consequences to wildlife and recreational activities due to this catastrophe.
