Ice Ice Baby!

One well-known phenomenon of chemistry is that ice is less dense than water. Because of that, it will never sink when put in a glass of water.

What do you guys suppose would happen if ice was denser than water?

I think total chaos would ensue if ice were dense enough to sink in water since ice in the ocean serves as an insulator for heat and UV rays. Without these insulators, the ocean would probably boil.

Every thing would be Ka Ray Zey but if ice was denser than water, people would probably be use to it already. For example, imagine a world where ice was ALWAYS denser than water. People would probably be wondering what it would be like for ice to be LESS denser than water. I guess scientist would just find away to deal with it.
