The American Astronomical Society and the American Geophysical Union are listed as contributors to the accompanying video clip, but beyond that. . . ? My hunch is, this type of anonymous press release is probably churned out by committee so that nobody has to sign his or her name to it. It also tends to give the (dis)info an air of undisputed "common knowledge" which no individual would claim ownership of, nor take responsibility for.
It's all about perception.

Possibly see this thread:

(Electric Currents Between the Moon and Earth)
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=372

Or this section:

(Electricity and Plasma, from Micro to Macro and Beyond - Section 3: The Solar Domain - Earth's Moon Involved in Electrical Interactions With Earth's Plasma Tail, as Well as the Solar Wind.)
viewtopic.php?p=5884#p5884

Don't know that there are necessarily better resources on that particular article... But a few related ones from NASA & others on charging of moon dust, moon fountains, etc. etc.

Since you asked, I've looked a little deeper. Here's some stuff I came up with...

(Preparing for a Walk on the Moon - Astronomers Discover that the Earth's Magnetotail Charges the Surface of the Moon)
http://www.aip.org/dbis/stories/2008/18115.html

(The Moon and the Magnetotail)

(Lunar Surface Charging in the Magnetotail)
http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2008AGUFM.P31B1390S

(Dependence of Lunar Surface Charging on Ambient Plasma Conditions and Solar Irradiation)
http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2007AGUSMSM23B..03S

(The Lunar Dust-Plasma Environment: Implications for Science and Exploration)

(Heliophysics Science and the Moon - Potential Solar and Space Physics Science for Lunar Exploration)
http://nasascience.nasa.gov/about-us/sc ... oonRpt.pdf

The last one seems pretty cool. Haven't read it thoroughly though.

Michael,

Excellent work and thx for sharing it.

You rock.
