Hottest June ever on Earth reportedly just occurred last month. According to climate data released Monday from the National Climatic Data Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the hottest June ever on Earth happened last month since the records from the 1880.

According to the reports of the National Climatic Data Center detailing that last month was the hottest June ever on Earth, the worldwide average temperature over land and sea in June 2014 was 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit hotter than the 20th century average of 59.9 degrees.

The new data on the hottest June ever on Earth was released Monday. According to Slate, the report shows humanity has just reached another milestone in its attempts at cooking the planet. The last three months collectively was reportedly the warmest climate ever experienced by humans since the 1880s.

Forbes reports that the record regarding the hottest June ever on Earth was largely from warmer than normal ocean surfaces. Last month, reports say that the Earth saw the highest temperatures on the water for any June on record. The report also said that the average global land surface temperature for Jun. 2014 was the seventh hottest June ever on Earth recorded.

It was the Japan Meteorological Agency which said that Jun. 2014 was the warmest June on Earth since they started recording temperatures back in 1891. The hottest June ever on Earth record was reportedly followed the May 2014 record, which was the warmest May globally on record. The May one in turn followed April 2014, which was also the warmest April on record.

Collectively, the three-month period was reportedly about 0.68 degrees Celsius (1.22 degrees Fahrenheit) above the 20th-century average. It may appear not that alarming at first, but according to Slate, this added warmth was enough to change all sorts of weather occurrences and climate events worldwide.

Forbes said that the hottest June ever on Earth record was truly just the icing on the cake as January 2014 from June 2014 tied 2002 as the third warmest first half of the year on record.

Because of abnormally warm oceans, the earliest hurricane ever recorded to make landfall in North Carolina occurred. A plague of heat waves also affected countless cities, from India to California to the Middle East. In addition to human-caused global warming, this year's hottest June ever on Earth recorded came because of the build-up of  El Niño in the Pacific.

This data is reportedly taken from the average of all countries on the planet. Reports also say that climate change shows itself through different ways in different locations.

According to Forbes, countries such as New Zealand, Central Africa, the United Kingdom and France took the brunt of the heat from the hottest June ever on Earth.

Slate reported that NASA has also released its monthly global temperature numbers for June Monday. The NASA report was reportedly identical to the National Climatic Data Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The NASA report says that June was the all-time third warmest in the year. May was the warmest and April was tied for second.

According to reports, the two datasets were amongst the gold standards in keeping track of Earth's growing heat records.

There were also a report which said that April's atmospheric carbon dioxide levels reached the month average of 400 parts per million. This was the first time in at least 800,000 years that it happened.

Hottest June ever on Earth holds with it a host of possibilities that the planet may be affected. An annual "State of the Climate" report for 2013 from the American Meteorological Society reportedly compiled a list of possible climate change impacts and mileposts observed last year. It ranged from the warming of the Alaskan permafrost to the highest wind speeds ever seen in tropical cyclones.
