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.

    You said you’d try to shut it down. It’s time to keep your promise.

    We want our state to use the great lakes and our state assets for renewable energy not more pipelines and oil. We want a better future!

    Enbridge has a long history of spills . The risk to our fresh water is horrendous. I also remind you that we are the watershed of those states south of us. There are other ways for big oil to transport their product. Hopefully, with the development of clean energy, their days are numbered.

    Oil and water don’t mix. Judtt remember please there’s always always the possibility of a malfunction. Let Enbridge find another to move their oil. We don’t benefit very much from that oil in the state of Michigan anyway.
