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.

    Enbridge is not truthful it is a corporation. Corporations must manipulate facts and money to stay alive. This corporation

    has proven itself by repeated oil spills and fouling of water. Stop this madness now

    The Great Lakes need to be protected. An aging pipeline that is ready to burst needs to be replaced, or decommissioned. This pipeline affects both Canada and the United States. Ignoring these issues it will create a one time crisis and complete destruction of an area of the world that can never be replaced. It is the duty of your government to protect the interests of this generation, and future generations and this planet. Please take action today!

    Line 5 must be shut down immediately. Totally irresponsible to keep it open. Backward and dangerous.

    Ms. Whitmer, please understand people want the pipeline removed permanently. Assist Enbridge with alternate delivery solutions, and not at taxpayer cost, and absolutely not another pipeline. This is not an area of compromise, please be the leader you have shown yourself to be and an example for environmental protection.

    Michigan needs to support more renewable energy options to reduce our carbon emissions and create thousands of sustainable, long-tern jobs for our state. Our Great Lakes are the largest source of freshwater on the planet, lets keep our water safe and decommission Line 5 out of operation.

You can help now.
