SIGN THE PETITION

This is how we make our government accountable to the people. We'll deliver your signature in January 2020 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.

    Don’t let them continue to accelerate the Extermination of Life on Earth ! !


    Climate destroyers and environmental crisis deniers are dangerous, intentionally ignorant, gluttonous, duped and deluded sellouts to the corporations, the military-industrial complex and/or fossil fuels…


    The “Drainer of the Swamp” and the readily pliable, “brain washed” CULT, gullible and timid and prideful enough to persist in bowing to him are Rendering Cesspools, Minefields and Imminent Armageddon!!!
    >>>> True Enemies of the People and the Planet!


    This is existential. Life and death. Another Catastrophic Emergency or Extinction, at any given moment. Wake Up and smell the corpses !


    ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to rescue humanity and any part of the wilderness, planet and biosphere from their ongoing rape and murder by mankind’s greed.


    Extinction is on the horizon!!


    Survival must be our first priority !


    For our Grandchildren.


    !End This Foolishness !
