A interesting discussion indeed!
The Wiedemann-Franz Law may bring more light in this discussion.
Gustav Wiedemann and Rudolph Franz found an empirical law of physics,
concerning the ratio of the thermal conductivity (K) of a metal to its electrical
conductivity (Ã), being a constant times the absolute temperature.
Good and easy to understand descriptions can be found not only in:
