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.

    I was born and raised in south east Michigan, earned a bachelor’s degree from NMU in Marquette, have crossed the Straits more times than could be counted, and believe its protection is paramount!

    The risks and costs to another probable leak/break in line 5 along its route through Michigan far outweigh the small benefits to Michigan and its citizens. Let Enbridge find an alternate route through Canada. Please, no tunnel.

    We have to muster the courage & creativity to transition from oil to renewables. It took 13 years to transition from horse-and-buggy to the automotive era. It was tough, but it was doable & once rolling, inevitable. The same holds true here. Identify the innovators & empower them to lead us.

    Knowing what we ALL know now about oil pipelines, I’m amazed that they still are proposing this in one of the Great Lakes. No, no, no, no, no. We can’t make a new Great Lake when the spill happens, not if, when. No.
