Eagleton has not reneged on scepticism: he is just sceptical about it.
Indeed. Having just read a piece about the fear mongering of population control advocates and the real human damage they've caused, it occurs to me that the biggest problem of the left is that it isn't skeptical of it's skepticism often nor deeply enough. Population will 'explode' and resources will 'run out' causing masive global disaster? A new ice age is coming? Global warming will kill us all if we do nothing to control CO2 emissions? All over-hyped skepticisms of humanity and the environment not considered skeptically enough.
