Actually, this is true but only under very precise conditions. Almost pure water (not tap water), certain temperature and very high tech freezing with a perfectly level surface. The convection currents in the water caused by the warmth will expose more water to the cold and make the water freeze faster (or something close to that).

Im not saying your wrong or anything because I'm sure what your saying is true. But I do know that even with tap water and a regular freezer warm water will freeze faster that cold water. I didnt believe it at first because it just seems impossible so i tried it and it does work. Im sure what you are saying will have much more dramatic results and the warm water will freeze a lot faster instead of marginally faster than cold water but I do know that it works pretty well with regular tap water and a standard freezer. Its something I used a ton in college when trying to freeze ice for drinks that night, its not like it freezes it in an hour or anything but solid ice can form with warm water used maybe an 30 mins to an hour or so before the cold water it completely frozen.
