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.

    We can’t take strong action to stop climate change by pouring money into dangerous fossil fuel infrastructure.

    We can’t fight climate change by building this tunnel! No tunnel.

    From my calculations if they were to build a tunnel and it got flooded with oil it will only take less then five hours to fully engulf with over 4.5 million gallons of crude oil!! So we all need to say no to the Tunnel l, to line 5 and governor Whitmer for being easily Influenced by Enbridge’s slimy greasy lobbyists! Shame on both of them !!

    Please keep your promise, not just to the people in Michigan, but the millions that rely on the waters of the Great Lakes everyday. This is not just a Michigan issue. You have the opportunity at your fingertips to honor the treaties, and keep your promises. No tunnel, no pipeline. Shut it down., and get it as far away from the Great Lakes as possible.

    The tunnel plan that Gov. Whitmer is considering will both put the great lakes at risk for an unacceptable period of time while it is being constructed and is not what the direction we should be moving towards in the face of climate change and a need to eliminate fossil fuels as an energy source.
