According to NASA, October 2015 set a world record for global temperature increases.

“October 2015 averaged 1.04 degrees Celsius above the 1951-1980 mean, making October 2015 the warmest October on record by a large margin globally. The previous record for October was +0.86 C. set in October 2014. The highest anomaly during the strongest El Nino of 1997-98 was +0.88 C. El Nino’s typically have a warming influence on the overall global temperature.

“Even more impressive is the fact that the global land/ocean temperature anomaly for October 2014 (+1.04 C.) was the highest anomaly for any month of the year going all the way back to 1880 when records began. The previous highest anomaly was +0.97 C. set in January 2007.”
