Sooo...as global warming melts the Ice, and the freshwater runoff flows into the North Atlantic, heat distribution is impaired and we get...Global cooling...which causes glaciers to grow...which causes global warming...which causes...glaciers to melt...which causes...global cooling...Is that what I'm reading?
