    Is there a way to get power from difference in temperature in a conductive rod?
    If you have a metal pole with one end that is 70°F, and the other end is say, 30°F, is that of any use in generating any electrical current or other form of usable energy?

    thermodynamics-wise yes...however that temperature difference is kind of low...whatever this is has to have an exceptional efficiency.

    "Delta" "degrees" = difference in temperature.

    What's with your name? A person who kills gods?

    yes.
    what you have described is a temperature transducer.

    the power output of such a transducer is very, very low.
