SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature in January 2020 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.

    We absolutely cannot a risk of a pipeline failure at the convergence of three of the largest Great Lakes. Enbridge is not failure safe.

    My home is on the Straits of Mackinac. This is our chance to stop Enbridge and to help protect clean Michigan waters. We should ALL know better by now. Our Native American people know. Please listen to common sense and stop big oil money from making more horrible environmental choices for our children.

    There is no way enbridge can be trusted, they’re just concerned about their bottom line, they don’t care about the people of Michigan, our water, or our environment. Please see shut this disaster down as soon as you can!!! Thank you!

    Why is this decision so hard to make? Think of all of the Enbridge spills that Michigan has had to endure over the years. And still they are allowed to continue. So if you allow this to come to fruition guess who will be at fault when the “oil” hits the fan, Governor?

    It is utter lunacy to think running oil under the lake wouldn’t sooner or later lead to disaster. It is irresponsible to allow this problem to be an issue for future generations to have to suffer with. Please do the right thing! Don’t make decisions based on immediate money in your pocket.
