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

The Enbridge 3 Line is a new potential route for a pipeline in Minnesota. Like all pipelines, is at great risk of spilling, and it's projected to cause 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 carry Canadian tar sands crude oil, which has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world. 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.

For today's Daily Action, tell the Minnesota Department of Commerce to stop the Enbridge pipeline!
