Attorney General Bill Schuette Inaction On Line 5 TunnelGov. Snyder’s announcement to build an oil tunnel in the Mackinac Straits will leave Enbridge’s Line 5 right where it is, a threat to the Great Lakes. It’s a failure of leadership by the governor that is endorsed by Attorney General Bill Schuette.

We need to put pressure on our Attorney General now! Let him now we oppose the Snyder-Schuette-Enbridge oil tunnel that will take 10 years to build and keep Line 5 as a dangerous oil pipeline rupture threat.

 

There’s no time to waste. We can win this fight and save the Great Lakes! We are counting on you now to let Attorney General Bill Schuette know you want him to oppose the Enbridge oil tunnel. After you contact him, report your contact below!

Talking Points:

  • This is not a solution for Michigan, but a solution for Enbridge to keep the Mackinac Straits at risk from their Line 5 oil pipelines and for Canada to get its oil processed using Michigan as a shortcut.
  • Line 5 faces multiple threats that will remain in place while a new Canadian tunnel is built through the Straits.
  • A worst-case scenario of a Mackinac Straits rupture would leak more than 2 million gallons of oil, contaminating 437 miles of Great Lakes shoreline, and cost $1.86 billion in damages, according to a study spearheaded by Professor Guy Meadows from Michigan Technological University.
  • This threat will remain in place for 7 to 10 years while an oil pipeline is constructed for Canada.
  • Even after a Line 5 oil tunnel is built, the oil pipeline will remain a permanent threat across its entire 645-mile length, putting more than 200 waterways at risk, including the storied AuSable River and watersheds that flow directly into Lake Michigan.
  • Fossil fuel is on its way out thanks to a rapid transition to cleaner energy sources. This tunnel will be a stranded asset when the cost of producing energy from fossil fuel becomes more expensive than from using renewables like wind and solar. In the near future, the State will be on the hook for a tunnel that is no longer financially feasible.

    This was what I wrote:Dear Mr. schuette,

    An oil carrying tunnel for petroleum that for the most part, benefits the Canadians and some American big petroleum interests is still NOT a solution. The fact remains an oil bearing pipeline will still be going under one of the earths largest fresh water aquifers and 90percent of Americas fresh water supply.

    This is not in the interest of Americans and is a total raw deal for people in Michigan. I am a business owner that depends on " Pure Michigan", And also a Lake front Huron land owner. You have the ability to do the right thing for Michigan. Please do.
