It's also the warmest year to date

The first seven months of 2015 comprised the warmest such period on record across the world's land and ocean surfaces, at 0.85°C (1.53°F) above the 20th century average, surpassing the previous record set in 2010 by 0.09°C (0.16°F). Five months this year, including the past three, have been record warm for their respective months. January was the second warmest January on record and April third warmest.

With El Nino growing in strength and a 6 month or so lag between El Nino temps and global temperatures, this year will likely smash the record set last year, and could possibly set another record next year.
