MPSC CommissionersBIG UPDATE:

The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) ruled on April 21, 2021, to include climate evidence in their review of Enbridge's proposed Line 5 oil tunnel! 

This is a historic decision. The first time greenhouse gases will be included in a review under the Michigan Environmental Protection Act. We will now be able to provide evidence not only about the climate impacts of the construction of the tunnel, but also the products the pipeline carries. 

Thank you to the 120 businesses and organizations and the more than 2000 people who signed our letter urging the Commissioners to include climate change.

Thanks to you and the tireless actions of thousands of others, we've won a major step in the fight to prevent an oil tunnel and fight climate change and pollution! We will continue to work with our partners at the Environmental Law & Policy Center and expert witnesses to present this evidence.

For more information, check out our press release and the video below about the Commission's decision. 

Thank you and CONGRATULATIONS for helping us win this monumental decision!

 

Dear Commissioners:

Allowing Enbridge to build a massive oil tunnel - and to restart the Line 5 oil pipeline that Gov. Whitmer has ordered shut down - will have significant impacts on our climate and our state. Building this oil tunnel at a time when scientists say we must cut climate emissions by 45% this decade is a terrible idea, and Enbridge has been fighting to keep all evidence about climate change from even being considered. In the midst of the burgeoning climate crisis, it would be irresponsible to allow Enbridge to narrow the scope of the review of this project so severely that the most important issues are excluded. We urge you to include evidence about climate change, other significant environmental risks, and public need in your review of Enbridge’s proposed oil tunnel project.

    Enbridge cannot be trusted, look what they did to the Kalamazoo River! Climate change must absolutely be part of any fossil fuel infrastructure decision your organization makes, to not do so would be highly irresponsible. Avoid future lawsuits by including climate in the decision making process!

    Like I always say…greed has no boundaries and Enbridge doesn’t give two hoots in hell about the environment. They only care about $$$$$. Line 5 must be shut down! And Line 3 must be stopped! The denial of climate change by Enbridge will bring about disaster.

    The most important crisis we face is climate change. Enbridge is one of the most deceitful and dangerous corporations because of their ruthless and careless business practices. They are responsible for the largest on land oil spills idk history, right here in Michigan. They do not care if they devastate our water and land.

    How can you not include impact on climate in a decision like this. It should be one of the big considerations.!
