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.

    Our water sources need to be protected. There has not been any oil line that has not caused toxic spills. They should not be allowed to build through our water sources.

    I grew up in Michigan. I crossed the Straits every summer of my life. I spent every summer on Lake Superior. My grandmother was from Rudyard MI. I have deep deep roots there. Get rid of Line 5.

    There’s no excuse for the fact that Enbridge’s Line 5 has spilled over 1 million gallons of oil already most of which was apparently as the result of the rupture that decimated a big portion of the Kalamazoo River. Posing a risk to not just the Straits of Mackinaw but all the land that it runs through, it should be more than obvious by now that Line 5 will continue to be a problem for as long as it remains in operation.

    Nehmen Sie endlich Ihre Verantwortung und handeln Sie menschlich und zügig: bitte. Ist dies so schwierig? Es ist schon traurig dass man Petitionen unterschreiben muss. Danke.

    Enbridge is not trustworthy. Their record proves it.

    The Earth’s atmosphere, the Great Lakes, the local environment, water supplies, indigenous life on land and in water, and human life, too, are all at risk with the construction of this pipeline. Who will benefit? Stop it!
