What can Mars teach us about the possible future of Earth? 8° (3 replies)

NASA believes that the Phoenix Mars lander has found ice crystals in one of the trenches it dug. If true, and we then extrapolate backwards, could Mars have been as wet and verdant as Earth is today? If so, where are we heading next?
