This doesn’t imply that thermography’s parent sciences (thermodynamics, computer science, color science, etc.) are imprecise; it simply acknowledges that the process of remotely sensing amalgamated thermal infrared exitance and translating it to a visible band artifact-especially when assigning a color palette for human consumption that is demonstrably and wildly variable-is a bit sketchy.

In fact, thermography doesn’t even measure temperature!

This video (4:52) explains away my-what may be considered heretical-claim.
