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I strongly urge you to take the following actions regarding the ongoing dispute over Enbridge Energy’s outdated and dangerous Line 5 pipeline which threatens our Great Lakes and climate: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 Enbridge was in violation of that easement from 1968 until it was revoked in 2020.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

    It’s not if but when something will happen and destroy what makes this state so special. Please step in! We need to move away from fossil fuels and continued support of big oil.

    We all know what the end consequences will be! We have lived through it many times in many places. Shut this down. Human beings cannot survive without safe clean water. Once the damage is done it can never be undone! Shut it down!

    If there were ever a leak, a law suit by the citizenry of

    Michigan and Ontario would far exceed the costs to remove and re-route this pipeline… and the citizens of would forever hold Enbridge responsible for destroying our most “PURE” asset.

    Mr. President

    Line 5 is a hazard to the worlds largest supply of freshwater. Embridge Has already committed the largest oil spill in a Michigan River in our history the Kalamazoo River. Please weigh in on this issue to remove this dangerous pipeline across our beautiful great lakes. Thank you Mr. President for your consideration.
