Take Action

The Enbridge claim that the U.P. will freeze without the propane they supply is just one lie. The truth is Michigan is a high-risk, no reward shortcut for Canadian oil, 95% of which doesn't benefit Michigan. Line 5 threatens the Great Lakes every day it operates. Sign this petition to call on Gov. Whitmer & Legislature 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.

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.

    My husband and I spent the summer on Isle Royale. We spent our honeymoon on Lake Michigan. I spent my childhood summers in Frankfort. We marveled at the Dark Skies Preserve near Mackinaw. We have a fresh water jewel here in Michigan…we have a responsibility to protect it…

    I don’t understand how money can be more important to anyone than the safety of 1/5th of the world’s fresh surface water.

    Millions and millions to buy politicians, no funds to protect clean and nurture mother earth.

    Rape a mother, party with the proceeds.

    Business as usual will not help, but will make the future more bleak and tentative.

    Allow me to remind the governor that I cast my vote for her solely on her PROMISE that she would

    shut down line #5. I expect her to live up to her word.
