There's nowhere on Mars as easy to terraform as the middle of the Sahara desert. There's more water, more oxygen, more life, in the middle of the desert, than on mars. And the land is so cheap it's practically free! And it's accessible: you can get there in …

That, and inserting the word "dump" before "guardian" so an archived version of the article is loaded, denying traffic to the , since it's gone rogue.
