The ice is melting because it seems that energy that should be escaping into space is being preserved by the extra insulation resulting from increased greenhouse gases especially carbon dioxide.
This is fundamentally different to excess energy being produced and not escaping. It's like saying that the reason I'm hot today is because I just walked upstairs and not because I have this heavy winter coat on.
The danger with pseudo-scientific explanations is that they always appeal to "common sense" - they are more comfortable to live with than the real reason that is often quite abstract and difficult to understand.
There have been hot and cold phases in the earth's (geological) history and they have had nothing to do with how much heat is produced on earth. Volcanic activity cools the earth for instance due to blocking out the sun by dust. It doesn't warm it up because of the energy of the eruption.
Any heat generated on earth is p**sing in the wind compared to what comes in from the sun.
