According to Charles Darwin, as the surrounding environment changes, so changes the anatomy or morphology of a specific organism.

But nowadays, humans have become very advanced in the technology and when the surrounding temperature changes, humans in turn change the surrounding temperature (e.g. the use of ACs), and maintain the surrounding as they like.

What I want to emphasize is can human being evolve with these scopes in mind?

It's important to note that populations evolve; individual organisms do not. –  p.s.w.g Jun 25 '14 at 15:32
@agharehanabbas Yes, human populates can and do evolve now –  p.s.w.g Jun 25 '14 at 16:03
