The Biefeld-Brown effect has absolutely nothing at all to do with Ionic Wind. All you are doing is copy/pasting from Wikipedia in an effort to make it look as if you understand what he was up to. I assure you that you do not.
Oddly enough, Brown considered this possibility & took steps to eliminate this from consideration, mainly by re running his experiments in an oil tank as well as in a specially constructed chamber that ruled out Ion Wind altogether and what Corona Discharge has to do with it is beyond me but not Wikipedia.
Brown also did some very interesting stuff along the lines of the Cavendish experiment - I shall look these out (I have the details somewhere) as it is relevant. The BB effect is very relevant to this discussion
You will never get a man to understand something his salary depends on him not understanding.
