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.

    The current Administration has already done greater harm to the environment & humanity’s ability to overcome these issues than is comprehensive. We did not need the projection of 3*C by the end of next year. Is this what you want for your grandchildren? Continuing to accelerate this extinction isn’t something money can buy, it requires great actions. Let’s not continue to fuel the end of humanity.

    Governor Whitmer. Please explain why you don’t understand the mindset of most businesspersons. Most believe and work toward the short term best interests of themselves instead of the short and long term best interests of our entire Global Society. Just shut them down first and fight the legal battle once that has been done. It is the correct approach because if the rupture ever occurs (as it certainly will someday) the damage will have been done. No shutdown or clean up in time to prevent catastrophic damage will or can ever be possible in such a small fresh water body of water that affects so many people’s very sustainability. This would be many times more disastrous than the BP rupture in the ocean.

    >>> Progressive 67 year old, White Male , constituent (Politically Active Daily) in Niles, Michigan

    Please, do all you can to prevent this foolishness.

    ANYTHING or EVERYTHING to save humanity and any part of the planet or wilderness from its ongoing rape and murder by mankind’s greed.… Ya’ know………?

    This is existential. Life and death. A Real Emergency , at any given moment. Wake Up and smell the corpses !

    Noam Chomsky’s characterization of our present day Republican Party as the most dangerous organization in the “history of the world” is terrifyingly accurate…………

    GREEDY, EVIL, Authoritarian IDIOTS…..

    >>>>>>>>>>> True Enemies of the People and the Planet !

    Climate change deniers are dangerous, intentionally ignorant, gluttonous, duped and deluded sellouts to the “oil”-igarchy….. The crisis is upon us…

    The “Drainer of the Swamp” and the readily pliable"brain rinsed" CULT, naïve and prideful enough to persist in bowing to him are Rendering Cesspools, Minefields and Imminent Armageddon!!!……..Hard to believe SOME of those UN- American ‘ditto-heads’ ever saw a school book: much less, a college or university or BIBLE ? ! ! ?

    Start Impeachments ! ! No pardons ! !

    The Green New Deal is Smart ! !……. Ironically, the majority of Congress (so far) doesn’t seem to see or want to see the economic feasibility and common sense of it all. Sadly, this includes many yet unenlightened Democrats…. All of Congress, both sides, all sides, should be working constantly and diligently against all forms of militarism and climate destruction. Traps of greed, optics, political expediency, America’s militarist dogma and, of course, so many “$pecial interest$” have clouded their intellect and humanity . Tax the polluters and the 1% and cut deeply into our immoral, empirical military budget. It’s the only RIGHT thing to do.

    We can at least TRY to save or reclaim as much of what was once our Garden of Eden as possible.

    What WOULD Jesus Do?

    Make America Democratic Again ! ! (M A D A)

    This is absolutely the most important challenge we have ahead of us. We need the most progressive, informed and dedicated and least “political” POTUS possible. There is zero time to waste.

    Bernie for President ! ! !
