Bloody great battery

Considering the atmosphere in the upper levels consists of a large percentage of sulphuric acid and the 'snow observed in some photos seems to be lead sulphide, I would suggest that Venus is one planetary sized battery which may help to account for it's strong electric field.

Perhaps we could hook up to it and tow it into Earth's orbit around the sun, trailing behind us with a giant cable to supply us with power.
