High global temperature records smashed in 2015

Chart: Global average temperatures between Jan and July each year from 1880 to 2015 (NOAA)

2015 was a hot year, even before the El Nino developed.  Now a very strong El Nino has developed and this is pushing global temperatures higher.  The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported:

  • July was the hottest month of the 1627 months on record since 1880
  • The first seven months of the year was the hottest January-July on record
  • The year-to-date globally-averaged land surface temperature beat the previous record in 2007 by a whopping 0.15°C
