I am sure you mean this in some sense I didn't get, because the one thing 
humans are really good at is controlling the environment--back to the days 
we started building fires to keep warm.

And one measure of wealth is how much control you have over your 
environment.  The wealthy can avoid the worst parts of winter by going 
someplace warm.
