The paper discusses the scope for redefining the temperature measurement unit. Boltzmann's constant is naturally related to the temperature, and therefore the unit of temperature measurement can be an energy unit. Thermodynamic irreversibility in a dynamic system linked to a thermostat is discussed, and it is also shown to be desirable to use an energy unit for temperature.
