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.

    I strongly believe that Line 5 should be shut down, not tunneled under the Straits of Mackinaw. Do not jeopardize the future for myself or those just beginning their journey of life.

    Enbridge has no in the interest in the people of Michigan our environment or our waters; only their shortcut through our state. End this now shut it all down.

    Compare this with the current sulfide mining effort in Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness watershed: Guaranteed environmental damage based on corporate track records; primary benefits to foreign interests (Canadian and Chilean in MN); few if any significant jobs accruing to local citizenry; enormous corporate spending to lobby politicians and lie to the voters; and of course those short-sighted politicians and uninformed voters jumping on board.
