On Earth we can live without a spacesuit, we can go outside without extensive protection.
On Mars we can live outside only with a ‘space’ suit or inside pressurized buildings.
Even if Earth’s eco-system would become way worse in the near or far future, a bad eco-system is still far better then no eco-system at all.
If you want to go into Science Fiction and we are able to terraform other planets, then perhaps. However terra-forming is not done over night, nor over years. That would take thousands of years to accomplish, not taking into consideration that we have currently no knowledge on how to do such a thing. Science Fiction is good for dreaming, it’s got little to do with reality.

It's a question that has been asked since the dawn of science fiction: will we one day live on Mars? Thanks to recent advances in technology, it's now possible to imagine a future in which humans are permanently settled on the red planet. There are several factors that suggest that this could become a reality in the coming centuries. First, Mars is similar in size and composition to Earth, making it a potentially habitable world. Second, there are many resources on Mars that could be used to support human life, including water ice and minerals. Finally, there are a number of ongoing projects to establish a human presence on Mars, such as the Mars One mission and NASA's Mars2020 rover mission. While there are still many challenges to overcome, it's becoming increasingly likely that humans will one day call Mars home.
It may or may not be possible, Here's why.
Yes, scientists have found life on mars and Yes scientists are trying to make it possible but for humans to live on mars, there would have to be a serious change in the atmosphere for people to be able to live, currently, there isn't a thick atmosphere if one at all and so there is not a way to stop radiation. Overall, it probably won't happen in your lifetime due to the current conditions of mars.
ذكرت دراسة نشرتها دورية "نيتشر أسترونومي"، أمس الإثنين 30 يوليو، أن عملية إعادة تشكيل المريخ ليصبح كوكبًا داعمًا للحياة "مستحيلة في ظل التقنيات الحالية".
وأضافت أن إعادة تشكيل المريخ أو استصلاحه "Terraforming" هي عملية افتراضية تهدف إلى تغيير الغلاف الجوي للكوكب الأحمر لجعل مناخه أكثر ملاءمةً للعيش، عن طريق تغيير تركيز الغازات في الهواء وتقليص مستويات الأشعة فوق البنفسجية وزيادة الضغط الجوي ورفع درجة حرارة السطح، مشيرةً إلى أن "تلك العملية تعتمد في الأساس على إطلاق كميات من ثاني أكسيد الكربون في غلاف المريخ الجوي".
Ever felt like getting off this planet? Well, consider Mars. Fourth Rock from the sun. It can be as close as 56,000,000 km away. It can be also as far as 401,000,000 km away. Even if you jumped into the fastest spacecraft ever launched from earth getting there would take anywhere for 40 days to 9 in a half months depending on the position of the planets. And after all that time sent in space, you'd finally see dry and lifeless Mars on the horizon. Would you be able to survive there? What would you need to survive on Mars anyway? First off, you'd figure out how to produce oxygen to breathe. The Martian atmosphere is very thin and it's 95% carbon dioxide. You wouldn't be able to just bring the oxygen you need to survive but you could extract it from the carbon dioxide. With machine like NASA's moxie not only would that provide you and other Martian settlers with breathable air. But also supply you with liquid oxygen propellant. That's the stuff you'd need to lift a rocket off Mars. In case you decided to return to Earth. There's no fertile soil on Mars to grow food in instead you'd use hydroponics cultivating your crop in a mineral and nutrient solution. No soil required. Of course without running water on the surface, your colony would be only be able to grow 20% of the food. You'd need the rest of it you'd have shipped in from Earth. But don't expect fresh meat. All your food would become dried. Along with the other settlers, you'd probably live in inflatable pressurized buildings but its more likely you'd go underground. Because Mars has no global geomagnetic field, and since its atmosphere is thin, radiation levels in the orbit above Mars are 2 and a half times higher than at the International Space Station. That's to much solar radiation for humans to bear. Forget about Sun Tanning. The sun would appear just half as big as it does from Earth. And if you want to go outside and return alive, you'd need a spacesuit to make up for the near absent atmospheric pressure. And to block radiation. Your suit will also keep you warm. Which is important. Because temperatures on Mars are very low. T coldest winter on Earth is paradise compared to the average Martian winter. Temperatures would be low as 55 degrees below zero. Even colder at the poles where the temperatures can drop to a freezing, -153 degrees. A day on Mars is just 40 minutes longer than a day on Earth. A year on Mars would almost be twice as long. Though if you lived in the Northern Hemisphere, you'd enjoy seven months of spring, and six months of summer. Then, there would be a 5 month long autumn, and another four months of winter. And not only are the temperatures are low. They can also change dramatically within a week. These variations often result in powerful dust storms. They wouldn't harm you but they'd clog all your electronics. Remember too that the gravity on Mars is about 1/3 (one third) of earth. And that's what happens if we lived on Earth a the future.
Humans will "absolutely" be on Mars in the future, NASA Chief Scientist Jim Green told USA TODAY. And the first person to go is probably alive today, he said. After the "building blocks of life" were discovered on the Red Planet, life on Mars and life on Mars seem less like a scene from the movie The Martian and more like reality.
No because it is to hot to live there.
yes if we get more an advanced race
I doubt anyone alive today will live on mars, but perhaps our descendants might. Who knows what the future will bring?
When Earth is gone , the Earth and the other inner planets , will form part of our Sun, when it moves into the Red Giant stage. Humans will not exist.
Nobody knows but NASA might know in the future.
We can't be sure but, I'm sure we will find a way.
you would be able to live on the mars when your older because It would not be a bum hole like it is now and when were older because I'm 16 it would be a great place to live on.
bruno mars future plans tell me the truth
We do not live in Mars, we live in the Earth.
Only earth that we know of but by terraforming mars scientist think we may be able to live on that planet too,many years in the future.
You cannot live on the planet Mars without an oxygen supply. You also would be safest in a space suit. In the future, some scientists hope we can make a biosphere on Mars. However, as of right now, you wouldn't want to live on Mars. I would say wait a millennium or two.
Who knows? Maybe someday we will be living on Mars!it is said to be that in the future that people might be able tobuild a city on the moon or mars
