    I don't believe those results could possibly be significantly different from one another at any reasonable confidence level (say 90% or higher).

    Unless you based this off of some actual calculation, your own "work" consisted of just sorta saying 90%.   Statistics is based on calculations, not gut feelings and numbers you pull out of your ass.

    The article in question was apparently sound enough to get published in PNAS.  If you can point out any actual flaw in their methodology, please do so.

    Linking to a news article is journalism in the same sense that putting a Big Mac on a paper plate is cooking.
