Bad Charts and Global Warming

A number of publications and websites are reporting on the latest ice thickness satellite measurements from NASA. Sadly they are ding it with graphs like the one to the left here. Area's in red and yellow are showing area's whose ice is thinning, compare that to area's whose blue to dark blue tint indicate ice increasing. I may be a layman but it seems to me that the size of the blue area's exceed the yellow red. So if you expect me to panic about this I must be missing something.

If you look very closely though, you will see the entire board of Exxon using flamethrowers and clubbing baby seals.
