Time to ban extreme energy on the Great Lakes

Warning message

Submissions for this form are closed.

Fracking, nuclear waste, tar sands oil and other extreme energy projects are threatening our precious Great Lakes. A spill would contaminate drinking water that more than 40 million people in Canadian, U.S. and Indigenous communities depend on and cause extensive environmental damage. In the report Liquid Pipeline: Extreme energy’s threat to the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, Maude Barlow details plans to transport dangerous new forms of energy – as well as the waste from more traditional forms – around, under and on the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River.
 
We need a bold new vision for the Great Lakes that includes stopping the worst forms of energy projects before it’s too late.
 
The Great Lakes cannot be a carbon corridor ­– there is too much at risk. Tell your elected officials to say “no” to extreme energy in the Great Lakes and “yes” to a sustainable energy future.
