    Changing the temperature of the ocean and, worst of all, changing the North Atlantic currents. The freshwater that is running into the upper Atlantic could change the weather patterns worldwide. The marine life could be altered in a giant way. “In a worst case scenario, global productivity of phytoplankton could decrease by as much as 20 percent and in some areas, such as the North Atlantic, the loss could hit 50 percent.” http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2005/04/050412213152.htm
