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.

    If Enbridge and Michigan need the pipeline so badly they want to put a new one in a tunnel under the Straits, how about they build a whole new line to current standards and updated technology. Everyone is holding their breath waiting to see where line 5 will leak next.

    We must end our dependence on fossil fuels. CO2 concentration in the atmosphere just reached 415 parts per million. Decommissioning Line #5 and canceling the tunnel under the Straits of Mackinac are good first steps.

    This is not something that we need and does nothing for the good of Michigan. It is just a risky shortcut that endangers the Great Lakes to provide a short cut from Canada to Canada. It is not worth the potential damage that could be done by it.

    Reversing your course if action is a betrayal to the voters who elected you and to the Earth. You are joining the opposition we must overcome if future generations have any hope for s livable planet. Please review side and keep your promise to the people of Michigan.

    Building a new Line 5 in an underground tunnel isn’t shutting down Line 5. It’s endangering the Great Lakes and our children’s future for decades to come.

    Keep your campaign promise, Governor Whitmer. We must decommission the pipeline and transition fully to clean energy.
