cold as blue glacial ice = low energy (temperature)

hot as red glowing metal = high energy (temperature)

We have blue to signify cold water and red to signify hot. I don't know if these color associations are somehow intuitive or simply taught culturally. Fire is rarely blue, but very often yellow, orange, and red. It is interesting that radiant heat is conveyed in the infrared region of the spectrum. The decision to design the computer program to essentially "reverse" the spectral portrayal of energies in is interesting. It works sort of like a weather map.
