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.

    You agreed with “no Line 5”, so with no Line 5 that means no tunnel because there would be no lines to run through it. The building of a tunnel will only be another catastrophe, like the 33 oil spills in Michigan from this line already. Do not allow this in a world under siege by climate change. We won’t need all that oil in the near future so let’s just stop it now.


    Sincerely,

    Roberta Meserve

    I’ve been coming to northern Michigan for the last 39 years. It is a serene place filled with nature and an oil spill could irreparably hurt the place I love. With today’s technology advancements and the decline in oil consumption, there’s no need to keep the pipeline active.

    Enough has been had. Stop exploiting our water and lands.
