July 2016 has been the hottest month on Earth over the whole history of meteorological observations which is 136 years, NASA.
NASA counted an average temperature in the last month was 0,84°C higher than the average in 1950-1980, and 0,18°C higher than the previous record months that were July 2011, July 2015. The temperature was almost the same for both of them.
Nowadays, the records have been regular as five top months also included July 2009 and August 2014.
Many scientists regard greenhouse gas emissions contribute to the global warming. However, no unilateral cause has been identified, though the changes are obviuos to them.
"It is terrifying that we are entering the era when next month or a year is the record hot, and the rest will be a surprise," climatologist of the Stanford University Chris Field pointed out.
