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.

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

    Dear Governor Whitmer,


    Pollution may seem invisible when it’s under hundreds of thousands of gallons of water, but “the butterfly effect” is real, and we all suffer from toxic enablers like Line 5. Thank you for your time.

    Gov. Whitmer, I realize you have an inordinate number of urgent demands on your attention. Please make sure to take actiion on Line 5 before it too becomes an even more urgent crisis than it is now. I implore you to shut down Line 5 to protect our precious Straits and all the people and wildlife dependent on the safety and purity of the water.

    It is sickening to me that the profits of the few trump (pun intended) the health and well being of the vast majority. It is what Republicans stand for. It is truly disgusting.

    Please do whatever you can to stop this bad idea and shut down this dangerous line 5 . Why should an oil company with a realy bad environmental record be allowed to risk our lakes. This is an area that depends on our beauty for our tourism. The “tunnel” will not supply many meaningful jobs to our area, but could destroy all that we love and hold dear. Shut it down!!
