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 and do not allow an oil tunnel to be constructed.

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

    Governor Whitemer,

    The greatest natural gift to us is the Great Lakes, it is also the greatest asset to survibe the water shorteges of the future.

    You can save both by decommissioning Line 5.

    Having Enron saying it will monitor itself, is like saying it is okay to have a Fox in the chicken coops. It is too late after a disaster occurs.

    I grew up in Michigan and the lakes were incredibly important to me. I spent summers there, and they were a fabric of my life. A leaking pipeline shouldn’t be simply covered with a tunnel like a distasteful spot on the rug. We need action that will stop this once and for all.
