You won't get a dmesg unless we leave the aprint_*() calls.  Normally,
you only get syslog/console messages from sysmon_envsys when a monitored
sensor generates an event.

Well, critical temperature is one of those things that should be logged,
if you still have a change to log it off somewhere before the machine is
forcefully powered off.

Yes, powerd's /etc/power/scripts/sensor_temperature will syslog the event by default. Depending on your /etc/syslogd.conf file, that may include logging the event on a remote host. This is at least as persistent as dmesg/aprint_*() which may or may not be saved in NVRAM across any power-down that may be invoked.
