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.

    Only a fool would lobby for new petroleum product pipelines after the environmental disasters of Exxon Valdez, Gulf of Mexico, Kalamazoo River, and other oil spill catastrophes of the past 30 years. Enough is enough! An oil spill at the Straits of Mackinaw would devastate Michigan’s agricultural, commercial fishing, drinking water, tourism, and water-based sports economies for decades into the future. What is she waiting for? Shut Line-5 down now! Clean-up strategies would cause chronic health issues for HAZ-MAT personnel that would effect worker’s longevity, costing the state and nation trillions upon trillions in reparations.

    Third generation property owners on Bois Blanc Island and a rupture in the straits crossing would decimate the area! Shut it down immediately!!

    I don’t know how we could have allowed a pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac in the first place. Under lakes that have the largest, purist supply of fresh water in the country? How STUPID! That line needs to be closed immediately and removed and no other oil lines or tunnels allowed under the drinking water of at least 4 states. This pipeline is old, has already leaked 33 times. Close down Line 5 Pipeline NOW and stop the oil tunnel! No OIL in our fresh water!!
