I've looked into global salt production, and it seems there is enough to spread around. Can enough be dumped into the north atlantic to influence an increase the flow of the gulf stream in a way that could help prevent it's eventual slowdown or stop, as this would be disatrous

Interesting. So, the salt would help by occupying volume that would otherwise just result in a slowdown. Like, increase the pressure of flow. Very cool.
