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.

    Act on your campaign promises! Michigan’s economy will be permanently crippled if that aging pipeline breaks.

    This is just wrong on so many levels. It is environmentally unsound, there are no protections financially for business and property owners, Embridge is trying to sneak a new pipeline in under old agreements – the old pipeline should be shut down before any negotiation for a new project begins. The pipeline product is limited – tar sands oil – and oil and gas in general. Embridge is a Canadian company while the residents of the State of Michigan bear all the risk. We voted for you and Dana Nessel because of your promise to shut down Line 5. The Bridge Authority was usurped by unelected men who want those funds for themselves. There is greed and corruption surrounding the implementation of the tunnel project.

    Gretchen Whitmer, I am so ashamed that you used a friend of my family to pose in ceremonial garb of the Anishna’abe and you are selling out at 3.5 months of your governorship.

    Shame on you.

    Have some self respect and stand up for Michigan and your constituents.

    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.
