July 2019 was the hottest month across the globe ever recorded, according to data released Monday by the European Union's satellite-based observation network.Globally, July 2019 was marginally warmer -- by 0.04 degrees Celsius -- than the previous record-hot month, July 2016 .The new record is all the more notable because the 2016 record followed a strong El Nino, which boosts average global temperatures beyond the impact of global warming alone.The previous record, set back in 2003, was 44.1 degrees.The second wave of heat saw Paris' all-time high pulverized last month: Meteo France measured 42.6 degrees in the French capital on July 25 -- more than 2 degrees hotter than the previous high, set more than 70 years ago.
