The pulse of fresh water then shut down the ocean currents carrying heat from the tropics to the Northern Hemisphere, leading to an abrupt cooling.
So arctic melting leads to self correction?
No, this was the Residual North American Ice Cap ~ used to extend all the way to Cincinatti.
This is Temperate Zone Ice about a mile or so thick.
Think "like Antarctica".
