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.

    Mr. Transportation Secretary Buttigieg, please educate yourself on this issue. Protect our Inland Seas and revoke the permit immediately. Enbridge can reapply if they are willing to stand by the integrity of line 5 pipeline and meet current safety and engineering standards.

    Being a peninsula in the midst our our beautiful Great Lakes, who is best suited to protect them. We in.

    Michigan have a vested interest in protecting the health and purity of what surrounds us! Please let’s not let Enbridge and line 5 be another example of how some in industry undermine what is so valuable for life on this planet.

    Fuck Embridge! SHUT LINE 5 DOWN! This Canadian owned pipe line has no bussiness being in our American waters! I could care less about how many Canadians will lose jobs over this. The Great Lakes is THE WORLDS BIGGEST FRESH WATER RESOURCE!!! SHUT IT DOWN! WE SEEN WHAT A GOVERNMENTS FAILURE HAS DONE TO THE POOR PEOPLE IN FLINT MICHIGAN! Look at Texas right now. Not IF but WHEN this line bursts, it wont only hurt Michigan, IT WILL RUIN THE WORLDS BIGGEST SOURCE OF FRESH WATER!!!

    I vote against the Tunnel:

    1-Do not put any more money into old energy source that leaves a carbon footprint.

    2-The few how has to sacrifice for the greater, these are the UP residence vs. safe fresh waters of the Great Lakes, needs to be compensated.

    3-I would like Enbridge to incest this money into renewable, Green Energy.

    We shouldn’t be making it easier to access an energy source that we are trying to wean off of. Line 5 is not a risk we should be taking with our waters nor our environmental future.
