2022 Animal Sentience  
Rowan et al.'s target article is an outstanding review of some of the history of the science of sentience, but one would have liked to see a much stronger "call to action." We don't need any more data to know that many other animals are sentient beings whose lives must be protected from harm in a wide variety of contexts. It is not anti-science to want more action on behalf of other animals right now.
