venus is already occupied by venetians. a melanated race of prodominantly women. tptb hide this from us also mars is already occupied. weve been lied to so much on this prison planet!!
Venera 9 measured atmospheric chemicals including hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, bromine, and iodine. Other measurements included surface pressure of about 90 atmospheres (9 MPa), temperature of 485 °C, and surface light levels comparable to those at Earth mid-latitudes on a cloudy summer day.

Because Venus will still be muggy enough to make the amazon seem air conditioned , whereas Mars will be "crisp" . On top of that it will take a very long time , Mars we can run around on right now if we just take enough supplies .
I know what you're saying , but terraforming Venus will still cost a lot of money and probably take a hundred years to get to the point where we can even land on it .

First we gotta send four hundred and fifty billion tons of Arm and Hammer to seed the atmosphere...
Then all we have to do is shower shave and head downtown......

Venus has no magnetosphere.
Solar flares would be far more dangerous to humans on Venus.
