Venus in a Minute

Our sister planet Venus could serve as a model for many exo-planets soon to be discovered in the upcoming era of new space telescopes such as James Webb and others. Venus may have been far more Earth-like than its present climate state, which is inhospitable and more like that inside a pressure-cooker oven with surface temperatures of 450 C and pressures equivalent to 1000m under the sea. How did Venus evolve from a past "habitable" state to its present one, and how does that help us understand our own destiny?
