    Mars doesn't have much of an atmosphere and the environment is fairly hostile to human life. Not unlike Bridgend.

    maybe after hundreds of years of pollution to make some sort of greenhouse effect,but it looks very unlikely,probably at most an stationary habitat like the space station,with fly in/out resources.I read that in summer in mars it gets to 20 deg c at day and -73 deg c at night ,that's a pretty large thermal difference .

    also the global dust storms that go on and on can't be good for any solar array

    Consider the fact that millions of humans today live inside very large buildings, work inside very large buildings, party in the evening inside very loud large buildings, and travel from one site to the next throughout the day in some combination of metal boxes and concrete tubes. They are only 'outside' (on concrete/metal) long enough to complain about 'the weather' to other humans at their next destination. The lives of many of these people could be largely reproduced in a Martian underground with existing or near-term technology.

    Getting there and surviving long enough to establish such a facility are still sticking points.
