Take Action

The Enbridge claim that the U.P. will freeze without the propane they supply is just one lie. The truth is Michigan is a high-risk, no reward shortcut for Canadian oil, 95% of which doesn't benefit Michigan. Line 5 threatens the Great Lakes every day it operates. Sign this petition to call on Gov. Whitmer 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 warming climate.

Call for real action to protect the Great Lakes from a disastrous 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.

    Please don’t play Russian roulette with the precious waters of the Great Lakes. You can deliver propane to the UP by another method.

    I will not be voting democratic in the 2020 election if the Democrats do not vote to shut down line 5. They say they are for the environment. So do what you know is right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am a member of the sail boating community in Michigan. Getting captains (recreational & commercial) to promote the removal of Line 5 would be a very helpful. Our new Gov Whitmer needs to act. Enbridge clearly is putting their interest first and is responsible for the worst oil spill in MI history.

    Leave well alone. I say this all the time. Man is imminent death to this planet! Greed is unleashed on what’s left of this earth. Stop and find new ways to use energy. PLANTS!

    I’m begging the Governor and Attorney General of Michigan to do the right thing for the planet, the health of the Great Lakes, and for the citizens of Michigan, and decommission Line 5 immediately!
