SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature to tell Gov. Whitmer and Sec. Buttigieg, 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 & Secretary Buttigieg:

An oil tunnel through the public bottomlands of the Straits of Mackinac won’t protect the Great Lakes from a 645-mile long, 71-year-old Line 5 crude 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 support your action to revoke the Line 5 easement and urge you to prevent an oil tunnel from being constructed.

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

    Oil under our lake was never a good idea, end Line 5 now.

    Let’s not sell ourselves out, yet again, like we did with the Nestles Deal! We got MAJORLY screwed over with that deal!

    The mistake you’re making is asking for ALL of my contact information. I’ll not put all of this info on fb. However… I’d love to sign the petition.

    Water and oil do NOT mix!!! Plain and simple. This is a bad idea, even as a forethought! Do not allow this to happen!!!! We should be setting example to be free from the bonds of oil in the research of clean, green energy options! This is 10 steps backwards, not progressive at all! And not to mention, EXTREMELY dangerous! Do not proceed!!!
