For the first time in far too long, the Michigan Office of Attorney General stood up in court to protect the waters that belong to the people of Michigan. We've been working to hear opening arguments in a lawsuit to decommission Line 5 for years.

Please join us in signing this thank you letter to Attorney General Nessel and her team.

The wealth and power of the entire fossil fuel industry and their allies are aligned against us and our Attorney General, but the title of this case is “THE PEOPLE OF MICHIGAN v Enbridge.”

Let our advocates in the Attorney General’s office know that the people they represent have their backs and are thankful for the hard work and long hours they are putting in to face off against the wealthiest and most powerful industry in the history of the world.


Dear Attorney General Nessel, Deputy Attorneys General Manning, Reichel, and Bock, and staff of the Environment, Natural Resources, and Agriculture Division:

On May 22nd, we watched the Michigan Attorney General’s office take a stand to protect our public water resources on behalf of the people. Michigan residents have been asking for this for a long time and we thank you all for your efforts on our behalf.

For years, we have been calling for action to shut down the Line 5 pipeline, which as you know presents a constant and unnecessary threat to our state’s greatest treasure. It is inspiring to see the work that you all have put in to bring this case on behalf of the people. While the oil industry and other powerful financial interests are aligned against you, know that the people of Michigan and people around the world who value our Great Lakes are in your corner.

We know that this case is a long way from being decided, but we are grateful for your efforts, and the people of Michigan are with you as this case moves forward.

Thank you all!

    Thank you for taking this stand! That 60 year old pipeline is a disaster waiting to happen, and there should be no more delays in shutting that down. Please call on my support however you need it. I’m a professor in Environmental & Sustainability Studies at NCMC.
