Data show global warming deniers say isn't happening

July was the hottest month worldwide since records began being kept in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced Thursday.
The temperature in July, when averaged for all locations around the planet, was 61.86 degrees, topping the previous hottest months of July 1998 and July 2010...
Worldwide, the combined average temperature over land and ocean surfaces for July 2015 was 1.46 degrees above the 20th-century average of 60.4 degrees, NOAA reported...
Last month also marked the 39th consecutive July — and 365th consecutive month — with a global temperature that was above average.
