Terraforming[edit]

I'm still unclear on this, does the movement and shaping of dirt (earth) represent a kind of terraforming or does the term only apply to making other planets look like Earth? If it is the latter, then we should amend the template. DaronDierkes (talk) 05:16, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Interesting...I always thought "terraforming" meant rearranging the land, here on Earth. A quick look at http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/terraforming says the same as the terraforming article does. I will remove "terraforming" from the template on the basis of the article and dictionary.
Thanks for noting that. Leitmanp (talk | contributions) 05:58, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Then... what do you call it? Landscaping? DaronDierkes (talk) 13:41, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

I thought terraforming was changing of the climate, which Dubai is doing by making artificial rain — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.226.184.129 (talk) 12:12, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
