Protect Minnesota's Water and Wildlife: Stop the Enbridge Pipeline!

Enbridge Energy's fossil fuel infrastructure is aging. And now, Enbridge wants to build a replacement pipeline to transport crude oil.

The Enbridge 3 Line, one of the potential routes for the new pipeline, is in public comment period in Minnesota. The pipeline, like all pipelines, is at great risk of spilling. It is projected to have significant wildlife habitat loss and damage a number of wild rice lakes in the area. But the impacts go far beyond the state.

The pipeline would be carrying Canadian tar sands crude oil, which has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world. This particular oil contributes massively to climate change, which is already showing devastating global effects - extreme weather patterns, record high temperatures in the poles, and rising seas. Additionally, a spill over water sources could threaten the Mississippi headwaters, having a massive regional impact.

A recent environmental impact report even goes so far as to say that it's not possible to determine which route option is best from an environmental justice perspective, because all of the routes are terribly risky. Each route would have "a disproportionate and adverse effect" on tribal peoples and resources, according to the report.

The Minnesota Department of Commerce has the opportunity to stop this horrible pipeline redevelopment project. The Enbridge 3 Line would put water, wildlife, and communities - particularly indigenous ones - at risk. Tell Minnesota DOC: Stop the Enbridge 3 Line now!
