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.

    C’mon Gov…stick to your senses. The same sensibility you pronounced during the campaign.. No to Line 5. No to any new tunnel!

    Please do not put our delicate ecosystems and diverse wild life at further risk for a dying resource! Please support more green energy initiatives rather than such a detrimental short term risk!

    Actually, the name sort of says it all. Oil and water don’t mix. I will add too that old pipelines do fail, old pipelines do rust.

    We need to shut line 5 and take the money to be spent on the tunnel; use this money for rentable energy sources.

    Michigan is not pure but we can prevent oil disasters. Keep Michigan waters clean.

    Our Great Lakes hold one-fifth of the world’s freshwater. This is entirely too risky.
