The ensued controversy is excellent for good science

This study is receiving a lot of attention, and much of it comes with a dose of skepticism. This energy will hopefully yield competing and increasingly sophisticated critical attempts at replication and gathering evidence that will test the thesis presented here. I applaud the author for having the courage to carry this study through in the current political climate. Looking forward to see more work from her (and colleagues) on this issue.
