TAKE ACTION

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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline, which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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

    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.

    Protect the Great Lakes! Stop the Enbridge Line 5 oil pipeline. Enbridge has a long history of toxic pipeline leaks, so now is the time to put an end to the damage.

    I shudder to think of the potential for traumatic damage to our Great Lakes with this pipeline.

    It’s illegal for it to be used. Enforce that law!!!

    The US Government has done significant harm to the Native Americans. Let’s not continue that line of thinking. Good grief-the government gave them that land and forced them to live there. Now you want to infringe on it? It’s not the government’s right to do so. They are a sovereign nation!!

    Thank you.
