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 urge you to take action now to decommission Line 5 and do not allow an oil tunnel to be constructed.

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

    This would be a devistating act and a risk to our lively hoods. This is about our existence. Water is life, NOT oil. You cannot drink oil. Start putting our lives, and our wildlife before greed.

    Constructing a tunnel and new pipeline under the straits area is not only incredibly irresponsible from a clean energy perspective, it also poses a huge threat to local and statewide environmental ecosystems. This pipeline has almost zero benefit to the residents of the State of Michigan, and it’s time to shut it down for good. Line 5 needs to be shut down, and we don’t need any new tunnels or pipelines – what we need to do is protect the Great Lakes, our natural resources, our biological diversity, our clean drinking water, and our beautiful state so it may continue to provide for future generations.
