Yet another region of the world fails to cooperate with “global” warming instructions.
New research (Zhang et al., 2023) finds the sea ice extent has undergone an overall increasing trend from 2005-2021 in the Sea of Japan, Yellow Sea, and Bohai Sea.
“Over the past 17 years, the maximum sea ice extent in the marginal seas of East Asia reached a maximum value of 17.4 × 104 km² in 2016 and a minimum value of 7.6 × 104 km² in 2007.”
