Hi Miriam,

The company behind the biggest inland oil spill in U.S. history wants to build a new pipeline -- and it would cut through Indigenous treaty-protected lands and the Mississippi River headwaters.

Canadian oil company Enbridge wants to abandon its existing Line 3 tar sands pipeline, leave it in the ground, and then construct a bigger pipeline carrying almost twice as much oil -- up to 760,000 barrels per day -- through northern Minnesota. More tar sands means more carbon pollution and more risk of disastrous spills and that's a risk we can't afford. Thankfully, we have a chance to speak out against this pipeline by submitting a public comment to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission urging them to reject this dirty pipeline once and for all.

Submit your public comment now!

Tar sands is the world's dirtiest oil. It's far more damaging to our climate and much harder -- and more expensive -- to clean up when it inevitably spills. Unlike other oil, tar sands doesn't float on water. It sinks, making it nearly impossible to remove. Line 3 would cut through the Mississippi River headwaters region, threatening the drinking water for millions of people.1

The Line 3 pipeline is yet another example of Big Oil trampling on Indigenous rights. It would cut through Indigenous treaty-protected lands and sacred wild rice beds. The state's environmental impact analysis for Line 3 even said that the project would "add to the negative mental, spiritual, and physical health impacts already disproportionately suffered by American Indian populations."

Tar sands is the most climate-polluting fuel on the planet, and increasing the industry's ability to ship more tar sands to market is a step in the wrong direction in addressing the climate crisis.

We need to keep tar sands in the ground because, put simply, producing tar sands is one of the most environmentally destructive industrial developments in the world. We already know that tar sands mining has a devastating impact on our water--from poisoning rivers and water tables, to killing wildlife, to using millions of gallons each year.


It's time to move toward a clean energy future and that starts with rejecting Line 3 and keeping tar sands in the ground. Submit your public comment now to make your voice heard.

Thanks for standing up for our communities and climate,

Cathy Collentine
