How then to explain the 1967 Writer's Guide, which treats Mas as having similar conditions to Earth?
Like I said, it never made it on the air. It was "legacy" background information that didn't negatively affect what we saw on screen.

That's the beauty of just the letter "M": Roddenberry didn't pin himself down with an actual supposed meaning to the letter, so he couldn't get caught saying anything that would be contradicted by later science.
