SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature to tell Gov. Whitmer the will of the people is to #ShutDownLine5

Building a tunnel for Enbridge Line 5 through the Straits of Mackinac is not a solution to protect the Great Lakes, 400 other water bodies including Lake Michigan, or our dangerously overheating climate.

Oil BurnSign to protect the Great Lakes from *another Line 5 oil spill

Dear Gov. Whitmer & Michigan’s Legislature:

An oil tunnel through the public bottomlands of the Straits of Mackinac won’t protect the Great Lakes from a 645-mile long aging Line 5 oil pipeline that has leaked at least 33 times into Michigan's environment. Even when its oil isn't spilling into the water, it adds to our climate crisis when burned by spilling carbon into the atmosphere every day. The time to end the threat of a catastrophic oil pipeline rupture is now. Instead of leaving a vulnerable and hazardous oil pipeline operating in the Mackinac Straits for years while trusting a dishonest Enbridge to protect the Great Lakes, I urge you to take action now to decommission Line 5 and do not allow an oil tunnel to be constructed.

* Yes, Enbridge Line 5 has already spilled 33 times and 1.1 million gallons.

    It is past time to stop oil leaks into the Great Lakes and the Line 5 oil pipeline will continue to leak more as it ages. It needs to be decommissioned rather than further tunneled.

    There is this immediate idea, bad for everyone and everything except the bottom line of oil companies. Then there’s the larger picture. Get a little ahead of the curve, we’re going to be taking them down, the oil giants. Invest in sustainable energy, grid, etc.

    No more Line for oil , please? A long time ago I watched News Channel on TV & saw some huge Black Holes. Oh no way! We won’t like to see many another more Black Holes like Sinkholes. We should not have Sinkholes here on the Earth. No way! Thanks
