How to talk to a "Warmist"

Conservatives and anthropogenic global warming skeptics are often accused by "Warmists", liberals and the mainstream media of being anti science. This isn't true. Here is my response:
We are in an interglacial period. Conservatives and climate change skeptics don't deny this fact. The question we need to ask is, "Is there a major impact on this warming due to man's activity?" Anyone who tells you the science is settled on this issue (or any other scientific theory) isn't a real scientist. Even the absoluteness of the speed of light is under question now. Real scientists are open with their research and welcome criticism from skeptics. They use this feedback to refine and test their theories. As for Climate scientists, they hide their raw data and computer models, fight freedom of information requests, attempt to subvert the peer review process, attack their opponents motives and declare the science is settled while shilling for more money. The crux of their theory is a hockey stick graph, made by Dr. Mann, that spliced an instrumental temperature record, that fails to account adequately for urban heat zones, onto a tree ring temperature graph that was "smoothed" to hide the well known Medieval Warm Period. The reason Mann had to do this splicing was tree ring data from recent years failed to show the rise he needed. After the computer code Mann used was released with the "Climategate" files, it was discovered the software used by Mann could generate a hockey stick graph with random data. Meanwhile, climate change public leaders declare we are in a global crisis while they live in mansions with larger carbon footprints than many Africa villages and fly around on private jets; raking in millions in speaking fees. Is there any wonder many suspect this is fraudulent? Conservatives haven't abandoned science. Science has abandoned them.

That is the best one paragraph summation of the hoax yet.
Thank you so much.
