Today is the Centennial of the Hottest Day Ever Recorded on Planet Earth
Original post made by Brian on Jul 10, 2013
Unfortunately, due to industrialization in China, India and other parts of Asia global temperatures have showed a steady rise. Last year 2012 was the 9th hottest year on record.
"The average temperature in 2012 was about 14.6 degrees Celsius (58.3 degrees Fahrenheit), which is 0.55°C (1.0°F) warmer than the mid-20th century base period. The average global temperature has increased 0.8°C (1.4°F) since 1880."

A single high temperature does not make it the hottest DAY ever recorded.
It makes it the highest temperature at that one spot.
For example, last month, was the hottest JUNE for the PLANET, compiling temperatures from all over the globe.
From NOAA: Global Highlights
The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for June 2014 was the highest on record for the month, at 0.72°C (1.30°F) above the 20th century average of 15.5°C (59.9°F).
The global land surface temperature was 0.95°C (1.71°F) above the 20th century average of 13.3°C (55.9°F), the seventh highest for June on record.
For the ocean, the June global sea surface temperature was 0.64°C (1.15°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.5°F), the highest for June on record and the highest departure from average for any month.
The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for the JanuaryJune period (year-to-date) was 0.67°C (1.21°F) above the 20th century average of 13.5°C (56.3°F), tying with 2002 as the third warmest such period on record.
Gettin' hot out there, Frosty.
