I married a crazy person. Sue me.
I say: “honey, I just read a study that said babies should not watch television so I think we should be careful not to let our son watch too much tv” Her: “why don't you try coming home and saying something positive, all you do is criticize and tell me what I'm doing wrong” Me: “I didn't say you did anything wrong” Her: “yes you did, you just said that I shouldn't let him watch tv! So now you're changing your story?”

So, just so Im understanding this right... You just left your wife and kids, your marriage is basically over, and the your natural reaction is to come on ATS and tell the entire story and then tie it into the climate change controvesry? Dude, that has got to be one of the most effed up things I've seen on here period.

Ugh climate change deniers are so ignorant, it is sad sometimes.
that said, our politicians are using it as an excuse to make a buck
for themselves and their friends. If they really cared about us and our
environment they would perfect solar energy.
p.s. What makes me so mad at the deniers is that they don't care about
our environment. if they did, they would see that humans have been r@ping
our environment for the past 200 years. All the nasty stuff we have done
to this Earth is starting to catch up to us. But climate change deniers
forget that we've destroyed 90% of the forests. I love when they say
"but plants eat CO2, so more CO2 is better." They leave out the fact
that we've destroyed most of the plants on this planet.edit on 19-12-2010 by Ghost374 because: addendum

My wife has something called narcissistic personality disorder (lucky me, I know!). This is a serious mental illness that can ruin marriages and destroy the mental health of children (and yes we have a son together).
One of the main problems with my wife is that she blames me for EVERYTHING and facts simply do not matter to her.
I say: “honey, I just read a study that said babies should not watch television so I think we should be careful not to let our son watch too much tv”
Her: “why don't you try coming home and saying something positive, all you do is criticize and tell me what I'm doing wrong”
Me: “I didn't say you did anything wrong”
Her: “yes you did, you just said that I shouldn't let him watch tv! So now you're changing your story?”
Me: “what are you talking about, I just pointed out a study that said babies should not watch tv! That's all I am saying”
Her: “no, I know you, you were blaming me for letting him watch television. It's all my fault right? I'm the bad guy RIGHT????!!! Why don't you try telling me a POSITIVE story that you have read?”
Me: “why does everything have to become a fight with you?”
Her: “because you treat me like crap and criticize everything I do! WHY DON'T YOU TRY BEING A REAL HUSBAND!”
(the above actually happened believe it or not)
I cannot discuss reality with her because everything is distorted and turned against me. She says something and then a few minutes later says “I didn't say that....I NEVER said that!!!”.
It's crazy making.
We have been in therapy for over a year and all I have seen is the abuse escalate.
Well last week was her birthday so I threw a surprise party for her and got her an Apple tv as a present.
When I asked if she liked the party, she said “(and this is literally word for word), oh I'll get you back on your birthday and it will be something you don't like!”
The next day I hooked up the Apple TV and asked if she liked it and she said, “well I don't know when I'm ever going to be able to watch movies but, I guess”
At that point I had had enough. I took the Apple tv, packed up some clothes and left. I returned the gift and have been staying at my fathers house for the past week.
Why is this relevant to this forum? Because in every way my wife reminds me of climate deniers.
Their only goal is to be “right”, even if that means lying and distorting the evidence. They cherry pick one or 2 articles that back up their nonsense, and then ignore all other data.
I left my wife because she operates exactly like a climate change denier. In her mind, I am the bad guy, and I'm sure any deniers reading this will think that THEY are right and that I am the one cherry picking. But just as it is obvious to you that my wife is crazy as a loon, it is equally obvious to me that you are just as irrational as she.
Here are a few links for those who are still on the fence about the reality of climate change.
2010 in review:
UAF scientists find arctic seabed methane stores destabilizing, venting methane at rate not seen for millions of years (in other words, runaway global warming has arrived people.....positive feedbacks are kicking in HARD):
In my last thread, “Global warming is not only NOT a hoax...”, here is what I heard:
It's the sun!
Medieval warm period was warmer!
It's the sun!
Al Gore is an idiot!
It's the sun!
CO2 lags temperature!
It's the sun!
Blah blah blah.
Oh, did I mention that a lot of fools on here think it's the sun? WELL IT'S NOT THE SUN!!!
I have studied the topic of global warming almost obsessively for 2 years now and I know more about the topic than I care to admit (that's just my personality). It's bad, it's getting worse, and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
And the next time you read a post saying that global warming is a “hoax”, just remember my wife. In her mind, she is right even though any fool can see that she is mentally ill. Climate deniers also think they are right......but we know better.
