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 and do not allow an oil tunnel to be constructed.

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

    The initial agreement called for the State (and thus the taxpayers) to pay for the tunnel. This was ludicrous, and I am so glad the entire project is hopefully going to be abolished.

    Gretchen,

    You seem to care so much about our health and well-being when it comes to COVID, now lets look at the bigger picture and put as much effort into saving our planet for the next generation.

    We must switch from fossil fuel to solar and wind energy ASAP. Consumer Energy needs to be more concerned about saving the planet than increasing profits. Start by shutting down oil pipelines in Great Lakes.
