Why, when cold, do we pee a lot?

is it a defensive mechanism? what causes the body to react this way?

Your metabolism increases dramatically in order to maintain your core body temperature. So as the metabolism increases, so does the amount of waste product.

No, it is a by-product of a defense mechanism - not the defense mechanism itself.
