There is good evidence that Venus once had liquid water and a much thinner atmosphere, similar to Earth billions of years ago.

Life has evolved to thrive in environments that are extreme only by our limited human standards: in the boiling battery acid of Yellowstone hot springs, in the cracks of permanent ice sheets, in the cooling waters of nuclear reactors, miles beneath the Earth's crust, in pure salt crystals, and inside the rocks of the dry valleys of Antarctica.
Tragedy is like strong acid - it dissolves away all but the very gold of truth.
D. H. Lawrence
History is moving the furniture around in the house of mankind just about everywhere but the U.S.A.

Michael E. Mann

Ocean acidification - the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that is turning the oceans increasingly acid - is a slow but accelerating impact with consequences that will greatly overshadow all the oil spills put together.

John F. Kennedy
