For the global oceans, the November average sea surface temperature was 0.59°C (1.06°F) above the 20th century average of 15.8°C (60.4°F), record high for November.
- The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for the September–November period was 0.70°C (1.26°F) above the 20th century average of 14.0°C (57.1°F), the warmest such period on record.

November was the 7th hottest November ever recorded;
October was the hottest October ever recorded;
September was the hottest September ever recorded;
August was the hottest August ever recorded;
July was the fourth hottest July ever recorded;
June 2014 was the hottest June ever recorded;
May was the hottest May ever recorded;
April tied 2010 as the hottest April ever recorded;
March was the fourth hottest March ever recorded;
We got a break in February. It was only the 21st hottest February ever recorded;
But, that break followed the hottest January since 2007 and the fourth hottest January on record.
So, let's see what the score is so far for 2014: one 21st hottest month, one 7th hottest month, three 4th hottest months, and six hottest months ever.
Additionally, we have the hottest year ever recorded.
I saw an editorial by an editor-at-large with Fox News the other day in which he stated there is "virtually no evidence that global temperatures have risen in the past two decades." Maybe he should check his facts before he says things like that. But, I guess he wouldn't be a denier if actually bothered with facts.
