Take Action

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, or our dangerously warming climate.

Call for real action to protect the Great Lakes from a disastrous 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.

    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.

    Reversing your course if action is a betrayal to the voters who elected you and to the Earth. You are joining the opposition we must overcome if future generations have any hope for s livable planet. Please review side and keep your promise to the people of Michigan.
