This is a load of assumptions, algorithms and opinions dolled up in scientific formulae.  It is speculation with little to back it up.  Hence the number of exoplanets with intelligent life could be 36 or more or less or none.  We simply don’t know at this point in human history whether or where there might be planets in habitable zones that support carbon-based life.  While the study is interesting, it is not definitive nor can any similar research be.  We have to find a people on an orb rotating around another star and only then can we harden speculation into fact.  What are the chances of doing that?  Slim, at best.  We would have to work through billions of stars in our galaxy alone and classify them then try to find signs of life on their planetary systems.  While science fiction fans would like to believe that such discovery is possible with earth-bound astronomy, the resolution is not there even with the massive telescopes now being built.  Call this study “science hype.”  It doesn’t serve the public’s craving for knowledge and desire to know if we are alone in the universe.
