Venus is too close to the sun.
It has no breathable air.
Gravity is too strong there....

There are places in Venus' upper atmosphere that have temperatures (and pressures) very similar to Earth.
I have read this before as well. This is what brings me to believe the closer Venus gets to the Goldilocks Zone the more Venus will become more habitable. I could be wrong but it is my theory.
This is why I posted this here... in case I am wrong then ATS can help me figure this out.
Venus is the hottest planet. Its average surface temperature is 464 degrees Celsius. Its atmosphere has thick, pale, yellow clouds of carbon dioxide and sulfuric acid. Carbon dioxide traps heat and prevents it from escaping to space. The heating of the atmosphere produces strong winds of more than 300 kilometers per hour in the upper atmosphere. This is also due to the dense atmosphere
On Mercury temperatures can get as hot as 430 degrees Celsius during the day and as cold as -180 degrees Celsius at night.

Astronomers have calculated that there is a tiny chance that Mars or Venus could collide with Earth - though it would not happen for at least a billion years.
PARIS: A force known as orbital chaos may cause our Solar System to go haywire, leading to possible collision between Earth and Venus or Mars, says a study.
A new study in the June 11 issue of Nature predicts there's a real, albeit slim possibility of a planetary smash-up inside the inner solar system, largely thanks to Mercury's distinctly lopsided orbit.

The Sun is what makes photosynthesis possible and we need this process to grow food. So with Mars being at a distance of 227.9 million km away from the Sun. It can no longer produce plant life. But since science has told us that all bodies in our Solar System is moving away from our Sun we know that in a few million years our planet will leave what scientists have called the Goldilocks Zone and Venus will be the next planet in line for the Goldilocks Zone. Perhaps by that time it will become a more sustainable planet for life to thrive on. Am I wrong in this line of thinking?
Probe hints at past Venus ocean
A European probe orbiting Venus has new data that indicates the planet may once had a lot of water on its surface and even had a system of plate tectonics.
The Venus Express craft has returned infrared maps that show heat variations among the surface rocks.
