History of Electric Comet Theory: Part 2

Thunderblog -- great-comet_of_1811

History of Electric Comet Theory: Part 2 By Hannes Täger Ph.D. General knowledge and understanding of electricity progressed at an exponential rate in the late 18th century as electricity increasingly offered new and feasible explanations for hitherto mysterious natural phenomena. Scientists across Europe and the World wrote a vast number …

Tornado — The Electric Model

Thunderblog -- Electric Tornadoes

Tornado — The Electric Model By Andrew Hall Cold, Dusty Plasma… Previously, in Nature’s Electrode, we looked at an Electric Earth model for lightning genesis driven by a plasma corona formed from condensing and freezing water vapor in the central updraft of the thunderhead. We also looked at the thunderstorm …

The Summer Thermopile

The Summer Thermopile By Andrew Hall In a previous episode, we talked about Nature’s Electrode. . .  how a cold plasma corona is the proper electronic model for lightning genesis, and how mechanisms for ionization in a thunderstorm work. Now let’s take in the bigger picture to get a more coherent …

Nature’s Electrode

Nature’s Electrode By Andrew Hall The image above is from NOAA and illustrates the consensus theory of lightning genesis. As you can see, it shows electrons collecting like marbles in a sink, accelerating down a slippery slope into what looks like a drain. A typical cloud-to-ground lightning needs a billion-trillion …

The Monocline

thunderblog-andy-hall-monocline

The Monocline By Andrew Hall In previous Thunderblogs, we discussed evidence of electromagnetic and hydrodynamic forces that shaped the landscape with arcing currents in an atmospheric surface conductive path. We theorized these currents sent bolides of plasma jetting through the atmosphere, blow-torching the ground below into craters and mountainous blisters, …
