Is Gaardinn inspired by Gethen in The left hand of darkness?

No, it is not.  I knew about Gethen but did not know how cold it was.  For this reason, it is a coincidence that they are nearly equally cold.  The mechanism behind the seasons is a similar solution to a similar problem.  Otherwise, there is not much resemblance.
