Bill Nye the science guy said we should look to Venus as a model for global warming on Earth. I have a problem with the comparison.
Venus has often been referred to as our sister planet but there are two factors to take into consideration. One is that Venus is considerably closer to the Sun than we are and Venus does not have a magnetic field like Earth. It is the magnetosphere that protects our planet from cosmic rays and particles and moderates our climate. Without it, earth would be a very different place.
Bill often simplifies science for children but simplifying out the important factors is not making science easier to understand. It is making the science fit the conclusions you want the reader to accept.
