Not in the slightest. We can develop GMOs to increase crop production in the environments in which they grow. We can build dikes and live below sea level, as shown by Denmark. We can build tougher structures to withstand wind storms.

Normally I'm in favor of addressing the root of an issue, but in the case of the outdoor thermostat, that doesn't seem as feasible as dressing appropriately.
