NOAA reported that June 2014 was the warmest June on record in 134 years of measurements, following a record-setting May.  Much of the warming was due to a surge in ocean temperatures, although the expected warming from El Nino in the eastern Pacific Ocean has not really occurred yet.  The Washington Post and many other news organizations carried the story.  Meanwhile, the Japan Meteorological Agency noted that the April through June period was the warmest three-month period on record for the globe, slightly edging out 2010 and 1998.  Slate reported that NASA and NOAA got similar results, although the actual numbers varied slightly due to different measurement sets.
