So if a planet in the Goldilocks zone is usually destined to freezing or burning up it seems to suggest a path to terraform Venus. We just need to export an organism that can live there and absorb the CO2 and survive the acidic environment. Some set of microbe that already lives on earth perhaps would fit the bill. Something that could float around in the atmosphere where it isn't quite so hot.
