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 & Legislature 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.

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.

    We must protect the largest body of fresh water in the world. These under water or ground pipes or tunnels will allow for a rupture to spill how many millions or billions of gallons of oil before either it is noticed or found? Enbridge can reroute these lines and bring them through their own Canadian land.

    Do not count on ENBRIDGE to do what is right for Michigan Great Lakes. No Oil Spill is worth the few bucks any lease could bring the State of Michigan in lease or royalties.

    We have a very short timeline to counteract Carbon accumulation into our atmosphere causing the planet to warm and weather patterns to change and cause erratic and damaging weather patterns, rising sea levels, and increasing health problems. This is the most serious problem that this country faces. It’s time to just shut this pipeline down for get the tunnel it’s a waist a money that could go to solving the Climate Crisis.

    You made a promise to the people of Michigan and I voted for you based on that promise. I am disgusted and will not vote for your re-election if you don’t live up to that promise. NO TUNNEL. NO PIPELINE. NO NEGOTIATIONS. NO OIL IN OUR GREAT LAKES!!!

    The citizens of Michigan have been very vocal and adamant in their arguments against the tunnel and possible replacement of Line 5.

    Corporations have a lousy track record when it comes to being faithful to contractual obligations. They can not be trusted to do the maintenance necessary to protect the environment.
