It is doubtful that this issue will discussed here at sci.physics.

Very soon, the mental masturbating weirdos will begin to jump
in with their sublimating nonsense.

However, a good place to begin is a search for "relativistic
thermodynamics." A small taste of this subject can be found here:

Here is an excerpt:

"You?d think that such an issue would have been settled decades ago,
but this is not the case. Einstein and Planck thought, at one time,
that the speeding thermometer would measure a lower temperature,while
others thought the temperature would be higher. One problem is how to
define or measure a gas temperature in the first place."
