Global warming and water

Consider this: Climatologists are stating that global warming will bring out more precipitation, an increase in sea levels and an increase in melting ice caps du to high temperature.

Now consider this important equation:
Q = m*Cp*/_\K. If there is a increase in sea levels, the temperature of water should go down, if we consider that the ocean receives the same amount of heat in the future. If so then, the phenomenon of melting ice caps should go down than, instead of increasing.
More water = less melting ice caps. Therefore, an increased sea level cannot logically coexist with faster rates of melting ice caps.

Anyone sees an error in my interpretation?
