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 more timidity about this stuff. If Whitmer doesn’t want to fix this then she can go too.

    This is crucial. As the Great Lakes State, we have so much at stake! Our beautiful lakes would be polluted for decades and fish, birds and other wildlife would die. Enbridge is not trustworthy at all. In addition, a Wisconsin electric company that was approached about being part of the tunnel said the tunnel was also a bad idea. Why gamble with our future???

    We don’t need a pipeline in the lake. Find another way. There is always another way.

    This issue should die instead of being morphed into another potential environment disaster.

    We do not need or want a tunnel!!!!!!! Our precious Great Lakes need to be protected from the greed and danger of oil.
