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.

* Yes, Enbridge Line 5 has already spilled 33 times and 1.1 million gallons.

    The Great Lakes contain the most fresh water in the United States and Enbridge is putting them at great risk all for their greed. Get the pipe line out of the Great Lake NOW1

    In 2014, I helped launch 2 GPS drifters from the U of M research ship Laurentian that showed how the chaotic currents in the Straits of Mackinac would distribute an oil spill such as one from Line 5.

    We ALL know DAPL and Embridge line 5, have NOTHING to do with supplying the energy to the lands & waterways that they cross. They cross areas of low population to dense population customers. Put a landfill or fracking in Chicago or NYC, then major population areas would take notice
