25 ways to be wrong

In an interesting guest post at the award-winning science blog WattsUpWithThat, climate expert Joseph D'Aleo lists 25 predictions/assertions of the global warming supporters that are not supported by evidence.  Here's the first two:
Global Warming Theory Has Failed
(1) Warming not ‘global’. It is shown in satellite data to be northern hemisphere only
(2) It is now not warming. Warming (global mean and northern hemisphere) stopped in the 1990s
The list itself is preceeded by the definition of "scientific theory" as supported by the National Academy of Sciences:
“a well-substantiated explanation of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses.” 
Thus, after looking at 25 instances of failed warmist hypothesizing, D'Aleo's conclusion that the alarmist position is not scientific makes sense.
