The average global temperature in July was 1.71 degrees above the 20th century average of 60.4 degrees, the hottest temperature that month since scientists began keeping track 140 years ago, according to meteorologists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The last five years have been the hottest on record and 2019 looks to end up among that top five ranking.

The UK witnessed its hottest day ever on July 25 when temperatures hit 38.7C in Cambridge.

July brought extreme heat to Europe, and massive wildfires to the Arctic, including Alaska, Siberia and even Greenland, as well as a record and sudden melt event to the Greenland Ice Sheet. The Netherlands recorded high temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius. Add Climate Change as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Climate Change news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

For Canadians, it may have seemed as if the heat never stopped throughout the month.

The most unusual average temperatures took place in Alaska, western Canada and central Russian Federation, where temperatures were at least 3.6 F (2 C) warmer than average, according to NOAA.

Alaska was one of the areas around the globe that experienced significant climate impacts in July, including setting all-time record highs and warmest recorded daily low temperatures.

Hong Kong: Cathay Pacific CEO Rupert Hogg resigns over 'recent events'
As Hong Kong's dominant local airline, Cathay was initially affected by the protests because the unrest put off tourists. The airline also said that Ronald Lam has been appointed chief customer and commercial officer, succeeding Paul Loo.

NASA, which uses slightly different methods to analyse global surface temperatures, including how it measures temperatures in the relatively data-sparse Arctic, August 2016 was actually the warmest month on record.

June of this year had already set a sizzling record for that month over the past 140 years.

In Canada, there is extra reason to be concerned about this rapid planet heating, as the Canadian government announced earlier this year that Canada was warming at more than twice the average global rate, with the average annual temperature throughout Canada is expected to rise by 3°C by 2055.

Thus far, 2019 has been tied for the second-hottest year on record.

In the U.S.it is probably hard for us to believe July 2019 was the warmest month on record.

The record temperatures notched up in July were accompanied with other major landmarks.

According to the United Nations, there hasn't been a strong El Nino this year.
