Chinese sailor’s historic voyage across Arctic Ocean shows evidence of global warming

Chinese artist-turned-sailor Captain Zhai Mo was given a hero’s welcome after returning to Shanghai from his nonstop 17-month voyage circumnavigating the Arctic Ocean, making him the first Chinese person to do so. Zhai, 54, was welcomed at an event organized by the Chinese government and the International Maritime Organization in Shanghai on Tuesday. Zhai embarked on his 500-day journey along with two crew members at a port in Shanghai on June 30, 2021.
