SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature in January 2020 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.

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

    My parents were born in Flint, MI, and I was born in Ann Arbor. My grandparents had cottages on Lake Huron and Higgins Lake. We spent part of each summer in Michigan, always by the water. Keep Michigan waters pristine. I urge you to decommission Line 5.

    We have enough concerns with trying to mitigate the climate crisis. We cannot tolerate a large energy company with its only concern being their bottom line, to risk our pristine Straits of Mackinac. Be strong and advocate for all Michiganders!

    This makes me sick. We just keep taking our natural resources for granted. This has to stop!
