SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature to tell Gov. Whitmer the will of the people is 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.

Oil BurnSign to protect the Great Lakes from *another Line 5 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.

* Yes, Enbridge Line 5 has already spilled 33 times and 1.1 million gallons.

    I’m begging the Governor and Attorney General of Michigan to do the right thing for the planet, the health of the Great Lakes, and for the citizens of Michigan, and decommission Line 5 immediately!

    Governor Whitmer has betrayed the people of Michigan who voted for her, believing her promise to decommission Line 5. Seems our Governor is a liar just like so many politicians.

    Our use of fossil fuels is contributing to an unhealthy environment and to climate change. The health aspects alone should be enough to make all of us who value clean air to breathe and clean water to drink realize that we cannot continue fossil fuel use. This is the case even if you’re a person who continues to deny that our burning of fossil fuels is driving climate change. AND, in addition to making our only home unlivable, fossils fuels are a finite resource. We have the capability to utilize wind and solar and these technologies continue to be improved. Pumping oil through our Great Lakes is a monumental mistake whether in the current Line 5 or in a tunnel.

    Enbridge has a very poor record of trashing our only world. But that company is in business to make as much money as possible. If Enbridge was a person, that person would be considered a sociopath with no regard for the well-being of others. The people who work for Enbridge are being PAID to try to convince us that Line 5 just couldn’t possibly break down and that we NEED a tunnel. Well, Line 5 could rupture and we do not NEED a tunnel. We do need clean air and unpolluted water to sustain life on this planet. Humans are not above the laws of nature.

    You all have been elected to serve your constituents, not to serve a giant corporation. Please do your job! Thank you.
