Venus is thought to have had an Earth-like atmosphere, but experienced runaway greenhouse effect, resulting in its current climate.
Looking among the 4,500 known exoplanets, 24 planets were shortlisted that ranged from anywhere between five billion years and eight billion years old.
The reconstruction and analysis show that Earth's climate can be grouped into discrete states, based on changing greenhouse gas levels and growth of polar ice sheets.

The ability of some types of stories, such as those rooted in religion and nationalism to unite large numbers of people, has outstripped the ability of other stories, which are rooted in ideas of equality and emancipation, to bring people together.

These planets range from worlds as large as Neptune to those smaller than Earth and with orbits that range from as long as 200 days to as little as a single day.
Global warming has caused 28 trillion tonnes of ice to disappear from the Earth's surface since 1994
Researchers warn that as the ice melts, the dark soil underneath will absorb heat and the earth’s surface won't be able to reflect back the same amount of solar radiation.
