Earlier this month, the next generation of Pennsylvanians got a whole lot safer. Sen. Bob Casey announced his support for the Clean Power Plan, which is the biggest step our nation has ever taken to avert the extreme weather, smog and species extinction that accompany climate change.

Sen. Casey has joined Pope Francis in insisting that climate change be treated as the moral issue that it is. Now, we know that he will face enormous opposition from the biggest polluters and climate deniers — the same ones who called Pope Francis "dangerous" for saying that we have a moral imperative to address climate change.

At the end of the day though, the writing is on the wall: Over 200,000 Pennsylvanians have called for action on climate, and we stand with the senator.
