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.

    The fresh clean waters of the upper Great Lakes do NOT need an oil spill. So far so good. No major oil spills. I beseech you to keep it that way. No Line 5 tunnel!

    If Enbridge and Michigan need the pipeline so badly they want to put a new one in a tunnel under the Straits, how about they build a whole new line to current standards and updated technology. Everyone is holding their breath waiting to see where line 5 will leak next.

    We must end our dependence on fossil fuels. CO2 concentration in the atmosphere just reached 415 parts per million. Decommissioning Line #5 and canceling the tunnel under the Straits of Mackinac are good first steps.

    This is not something that we need and does nothing for the good of Michigan. It is just a risky shortcut that endangers the Great Lakes to provide a short cut from Canada to Canada. It is not worth the potential damage that could be done by it.
