Another new article has been completed called Terraforming Ethics by Alex Moore. Here's a short snippet:

Terraforming is a huge undertaking. When we speak of terraforming we speak of completely changing an entire planet's climate, geology, and life. We speak of destroying land masses and geological features billions of years old, of raising the global temperature tens of degrees, and flooding the surface with huge oceans. We speak of releasing thousands of species from another planet to live and breed, changing Mars' atmospheric composition with every breath. As impossible as this all might sound, scientists are sure it can be done. Ironically, it seems that the only thing holding us back from terraforming is man himself.
