A Politically Correct Atlas.

The new Times Atlas edition shows Greenland with 15% less ice cover than previous which was too much for even BBC's warmist Richard Black to stomach.

Scientists say the Times Atlas map (left) does not follow the ice extent line as viewed from space (right)

The problem was that  the editorial staff obtained the data from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC)  which is a warmist organisation like NASA and NOAA , organisations which have a great deal of difficulty separating real world data from their fanciful ideological world . Maybe they just used the Trenberth model which assumed the additional green area was actually "hiding" under the ice! Skeptics have long warned about the accuracy of the data from these organisations where the real data is tortured until it confesses that global warming is real.
