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.

    My family and others do not want boil under the great lakes or a tunnel. From Mackinac to Detroit Michigan leave the oil out and the tunnels. We want to keep our great lakes and rivers and streams safe to drink to play in for our children and for all animals along with human lives.

    Our beautiful landmarks and planet Earth is already messed up by pollution and more. Why mess up the rest of the water ways too. What good ( Big Companies ) to make your $ money if we are all dead.? I hope you Mr. President don’t allow this happen because I would like to see my grandchildren to suffer from our mistakes. I would like to see them live and not die before their time. Even future generations of children to even have a future.

    This pipeline is a travesty and a disaster waiting to happen. I’d like to know who besides Enbridge is making money off this pipeline and why the republicans are protecting it. This company is environmentally irresponsible and has proved it can’t be trusted. This pipeline can never be worth the risk it presents to our precious lakes. Almost all the oil and gas goes to Canada so let them run a pipeline through Canada instead.
