It's an interesting idea but the melting is caused by both the sun and warm water from the Gulf Stream . If the Gulf Stream delivers so much heat would the extra ice make much difference? However solar powered cooling seems to be a good general idea.

I like sunshades better--they can double for space powersats too.
