SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature in January 2020 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.

    We don’t need any more oil spills or problems with our Great Lakes. Nestle’s already stealing all of it which God only knows how that happened so cheaply.

    You do know that the desalinization of the oceans as a life-saving measure for maintaining life when the Great Lakes experiences it’s first major oil pipeline leak will not work, right? Here you have the largest bodies of fresh water and you’re even considering Enbridge’s money over EVERYTHING? Do you know how absolutely stupid that is? Doesn’t Michigan have enough of a bad rep with the Flint Water Crisis – which by the way too many of us know the truth about for any tap-dancing PR firm or gov’t lies to ever think they can keep the reality hidden – so any hope of respect or dream of anyone continuing to think of Michigan as the Water-Winter Wonderland is gone, wiped out when that pipeline leaks and it WILL LEAK. Go ahead and play roulette with the water and life itself and it’s a guaranteed someday loss no one can undo.
