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 support your action to revoke the Line 5 easement and urge to you prevent an oil tunnel from being constructed.

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

    Stop the pipeline and insist these oil companies put these resources into developing technologies that are truly clean. As someone who lives in a state that sits on some of the most beautiful oil reserves in the world, destroying these trout streams is like destroying the Yellowstone River, its a place of beauty so rare with life so fragile it deserves protecting.

    The construction of the tunnel is dangerous enough to our valuable resource of 21% of the WORLD"S water, but add the fact that the life expectancy of use of the tunnel is diminishing by the day as electrification of vehicles is rapidly gearing up with auto makers. Construction will will take years, if it can be successfully built at all. Test drillings have already caused problems for the contractors. Once Enbridge ceases operations of the proposed tunnel the State of Michigan will be left with an obsolete, decaying disaster in an environmental area that should be protected at all cost.

    Thank you.
