Are you aware of any work or data that would support that?

Accent as in how words and sounds are pronounced?

In cold weather, I have noticed that my voice becomes more nasal and mucus-y.

No. People raised in the same areas by people with different accents take on those accents.
And if you are asking if the origin of existing accents were subtly influenced by air pressure, how would you test that?
If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

It is a bit unintelligible.
I considered moving it to RM, but seeing as how he might be serious and would be unable to see RM with less posts, I thought I'd let it play out.

'Tis a cryptic, mysterious post.  I did come up with the acronym 'Atmospheric Composition Change, European Network' acronym but that isn't very satisfactory, either.

This seems to be the most accurate answer so far posted.

However, if you wanted some information along the lines of what you seem to be searching for, I have found very interesting scientific philosophy with reguard to things like the causes of hair, eye, and skin color in Hippocratic medicine.  Physicians like Hippocrates and Avicenna would agree that differences in climate influences cause these differences.  A lack of heat has everything to do with the fact that most Russians tend to have blond hair and pale skin.  The converse is true of Sudanese.  Their medical works go into most interesting detail.
