Scientist Calls Mars a Terraforming Target for the 21st Century Scientist Calls Mars a Terraforming Target for the 21st Century

SPACE.com: Scientist Calls Mars a Terraforming Target for the 21st Century points out that we probably now have the technology to terraform Mars, and to do it within a reasonable period of time.

As with a lot of things that we can do, the question ultimately is, whether we should. I somehow find it unlikely that the same people who panic over nuclear power, nanotechnology, and the like, will lie down for this affront to, if not Mother Earth, then Father War. Yet, isn't it worth the risk? I think so, esp. given that the population on this planet is nearing capacity (maybe).
