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.

    Hydrocarbon fuels are on the way out in our struggle against global warming. It is not worth the risk to the environment to build more infrastructure for a soon-to-be-obsolete energy source. This energy source will only be needed another ten years but our lakes are here for all time and eternity as far as most of us view it.

    Our Great Lakes support tourism, the fishing boating industry, and wetlands and animals will be Negatively impacted potentially forever. This is not acceptable

    No pipeline for a Canadian company’s profit is it worth the risk

    Gross negligence, or willful ignorance. Let this pipeline die. For a better Michigan, and a better tomorrow for the planet.

    Enbridge has a failed record…Kalamazoo River and Talmadge Creek and they dragged their feet for 6 years. They are already responsible 33 spills and 1.1 millions of gallons from Line 5. Water is more important than oil..STOP

    Marie Kopin Please DO NOT approve the Enbridge line under the bridge at Mackinac. It would take 10 years to build it and th; old line is already over 66 years old and will continue to sprout leaks etc. In fact, some individual or group could bomb it and relase tons of oil to polute 4 of our great lakes! Secondly, the line is not an American line so we Americans do not really profit and risk the mess of pollution of our wonderful great lakes. Thirdly, we have oil wells in the mid MI area already plus more and more alternate energy equipment i.e. wind towers and solar panels. I do not want line 5 approved.
