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.

    No no no oil tunnel under Lk Michigan!

    Water is life. Our fresh water is more important than oil everyday. Cap line 5 & keep Enbridge out of Michigan forever.

    Governor Whitmer. Please explain why you don’t understand the mindset of most businesspersons. Most believe and work toward the short term best interests of themselves instead of the short and long term best interests of our entire Global Society. Just shut them down first and fight the legal battle once that has been done. It is the correct approach because if the rupture ever occurs (as it certainly will someday) the damage will have been done. No shutdown or clean up in time to prevent catastrophic damage will or can ever be possible in such a small fresh water body of water that affects so many people’s very sustainability. This would be many times more disastrous than the BP rupture in the ocean.

    A leak in Line 5 would have grave consequences for all of the Great Lakes and their cities.
