This came from my NASA email today, but you can find it at http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/01/160120115506.htm and other sources.

Earth's 2015 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern record keeping began in 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Globally-averaged temperatures in 2015 shattered the previous mark set in 2014 by 0.23 degrees Fahrenheit (0.13 Celsius). Only once before, in 1998, has the new record been greater than the old record by this much.

Of course, somewhere there is a conservative getting snowed on, so the report must be a lie.
