To sum up, living at the North Pole would be very cold and uncomfortable. Since very few people live there, there would be very few people to talk to.

Even though Santa Claus lives at the North Pole, there are some problems people living in such a cold climate must face every day. The next time someone wants to complain about where they live, they should consider those people who have to live at the North Pole.
The transition phrase "to sum up" is not the proper transition phrase to use in a concluding paragraph
The sentence: 'People who live at the equator also experience problems' should not be in the concluding paragraph

The sentence: 'Even though Santa Claus lives there, there are some problems people living in such a cold climate must face every day' should not be in the concluding paragraph
Most of the sentences belong in the concluding paragraph except the sentence that is providing new information
