Earth has sweltered through its hottest month in recorded history, according to Nasa.
Even after the fading of a strong El Nino, which raises global temperatures on top of man-made climate change, July broke global temperature records.
Nasa calculated that July was 0.84C (1.51F) warmer than the 1950-1980 global average.
Chief climate scientist Gavin Schmidt said that is hotter than the previous top temperatures in July 2011 and July 2015.
Scientists blame mostly man-made climate change from the burning of fossil fuel, with an extra jump from the now-gone El Nino, which is a natural temporary warming of parts of the Pacific Ocean that changes weather worldwide.
