There are several idea on how best to shield mars from the solar winds and they aren't all insane.

I know Nasa is/was working on a concept that would put a strong magnetic field generator a few thousand miles from the planet between mars and the sun which would create a magnetic shadow.

It's theoretical but so was flying at one time.
