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.

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

    We know that we need to move away from fossil fuels and have for years. We have one home and this is helping to destroy it! Greed should no longer win!

    This matter is of extreme importance to Michigan. Consequences will have a far reaching effect, well past our State’s borders, however.

    When there is an oil leak which most likely will happen sometime can destroy the lake and the habitat. Oil should be kept away from any kind of water. Once there is a leak, the lake will be destroyed and that alone is a crime especially when it could be diverted.

    So what happens when they poliute every bit of water. Human being need to survive on food, and drinking water.
