Sign the petition to call on Gov. Whitmer to stop the permit process that would allow a tunnel to be built in the Straits of Mackinac to carry climate-killing fossil fuel.

Fossil fuel giant Enbridge has just submitted permits to the Michigan DNR to construct a tunnel for their Line 5 oil pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac. If allowed to be constructed, not only will their pipeline be allowed to operate for another decade during construction, but a tunnel will lock us into another century of climate-heating fossil fuels coursing through our state.

Call on action now to stop the tunnel permitting process. Michigan cannot in good faith claim to lead on climate while building new fossil fuel infrastructure.


Governor Whitmer:

As COVID-19 remains an immediate threat to the health and safety of all Michiganders, I urge you to take steps now to prevent another disaster from unfolding. It is impossible to lead on climate change while allowing a tunnel to be constructed by Enbridge in the Straits of Mackinac. A tunnel will lock in a century-long threat to our climate and will impede the necessary transition to the clean energy economy that the science of climate change demands.

I urge you to stop the permit process allowing Enbridge to build a fossil-fuel tunnel for their Line 5 pipeline.
