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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline, which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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

    Line 5 needs to be stopped for good. The land and animals and humans need a clean environment for always.

    I spend a lot of time on Mackinac Island and have travelled the UP. This is the most historic and beautiful land and water in our country. At this point, we must take every measure to protect it!

    This pipeline’s condition is of urgent importance . If it breaks or explodes it will be devastating for millions of people and important ecosystems and wildlife.

    what type of environment are we leaving our children and then their children? You can’t drink oil. Does our future mean so little to you? Wake up before it is too late.

    I am a citizen of Michigan. We need to shut down Line 5 before there is a ecological disaster. And there are also ancient historical sites the need to to be preserved and explored.

    This pipeline should not have gotten this far without the complete testing required . We do not need to see another pipeline accident that could have been avoided by thorough testing of all aspects of the proposed project however much time that takes . We value our lake and demand safety and caution and oversight of every test .
