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 and do not allow an oil tunnel to be constructed.

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

    We have a very short timeline to counteract Carbon accumulation into our atmosphere causing the planet to warm and weather patterns to change and cause erratic and damaging weather patterns, rising sea levels, and increasing health problems. This is the most serious problem that this country faces. It’s time to just shut this pipeline down for get the tunnel it’s a waist a money that could go to solving the Climate Crisis.

    Recently my county (Antrim) board of commissioners have planned to adopt a resolution in support of line 5 pipeline on 2/18. I have decided to go over their head and come to you asking you to put a stop to this pipeline once and for all. For the good of everyone.

    Why would anyone sign a petition to shut down a line that heats thousands of homes in Michigan?There’s a deep freeze in the US North going on. Why would you shut down a pipeline that provides propane to people? You’re NUTS!!! and you don;t care about your neighbors. Get a life and start caring about people instead of frightening them. Total extremist leftwing BS.
