This comment by the author discusses paragraph 3.3. Adiabatic Phenomena—An Analogy of the published article [1]. The paragraph draws an incorrect analogy between Maxwellian gases such as found in the atmosphere, and non-Maxwellian gases embodied, for example, by electrical carriers in thermoelectric materials. As reported by the author in more recent articles, Maxwellian gases do not produce spontaneous temperature gradients in the presence of a force field. However, non-Maxwellian gases, such as Fermions or Bosons, can produce such gradients. View Full-Text
