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.

    Our Great Lakes must be protected from all forms of pollution including possible future oil leaks from the Enbridge pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac. It must be shut down now.

    Mrs. Whitmer, you were elected into office to be the voice for the people of Michigan. We say shut down line 5 for the sake of the Great Lakes and everything our state stands for. Stop being swayed by a foreign company.
