Dr TimmI’ll be traveling to the Cheboygan Public Library on Wednesday, September 30 to film Dr. Ed Timm’s discussion on Enbridge’s Pipeline 5 that runs through the Straits of Mackinac. Dr. Timm is prepared to show, according to Enbridge’s own figures, why the pipeline is even more corroded than they publicly admit. So what, do you ask, does Pipeline 5 have to do with loons? First of all, a fairly high population summers on the Great Lakes each year. Also, loons nesting inland, yet in proximity to any Great Lakes shoreline (French Farm, Round Lake, etc…), travel back and forth, perhaps several times a day, to feed. An oil spill will have obvious calamitous effects on these birds, and long before any emergency spill response task force can prevent it.

So, please join us, if you can, at the Cheboygan Library at 100 So. Bailey at 6pm this Wednesday. See you there.

  1. Did you ever tape this presentation? Is it posted in a generally accessible area?
