The weekly summary mentions what everyone has been talking about this week: the Cleveland abductions and whether the U.S. should intervene in Syria. You should also read Senator Whitehouse’s sermon denouncing global-warming denial as bad religion, and watch a 20-minute video of astronauts talking about “the Overview Effect” — how seeing the Earth from space changes your point of view.
