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.

    Please shut it dot. Show the rest of them how it’s done and that someone in power is actually willing and able to protect this vital resource. Water is life.

    Our Governor is on the side of a clean environment. All we need is committment from the Retropublican, corporate lackey legislature to keep our Great Lakes unpolluted by Enbridgeoil!

    Please take action now, too much is at stake to wait any longer! You certainly seem like a very good person. I would hate for a tragedy to occur under your watch, and to think about what your life would become with the state in ruins

    this must be stopped. enbridge does not care about anything but money. they’ve proven they can’t be trusted. Our Great Lakes eco culture and environment cannot not be sacrificed! Make the governor make the only choice.
