We discuss a thermodynamic identity which helps explain why H T00 at finite temperature. In addition we complete the discussion of the gravitational force by including the gravitational variation of the temperature. Gradients in the temperature induce extra forces not accounted for by the usual coupling to the energy-momentum tensor.
