Bad news: sea ice in Antartica has dropped to a new lowest level

Even if we can't connect this to the climate crisis yet, scientists are studying the reasons why this could have happened. They think it could be because of strong winds that have interest the Ross Sea and that pushed the ice in warmer waters, resulting in the melting of that ice.
