Given the current news on Hurricane Sandy,
Massive Hurricane Sandy takes aim at East Coast

perhaps this post on Electric hurricanes and weather may be of interest to some readers.

According to Blakeslee, the reason for the usual absence of lightning in hurricanes is understood. “They’re missing vertical winds” … “A hurricane's winds are mostly horizontal, not vertical. So the vertical churning that leads to lightning doesn't normally happen”.
But why did lightning occur in the recent hurricanes? “We still have a lot to learn about hurricanes”, Blakeslee observes.
Indeed. And we still have a lot to learn about lightning too. The distinguished expert on lightning, Dr. Martin Uman, has admitted that the separation of charges in a thunderstorm remains a mystery. So in truth, the absence of lightning in tornadoes and hurricanes is not understood.
But the answer becomes both simple and undeniable once the electrical nature of the solar system is admitted. An electric solar system could hardly exclude an electric Earth. And once we see electrical phenomena on Earth in relation to the larger circuitry, our planet's atmosphere can be compared to the leaky dielectric in a “self-repairing capacitor”: the charge is already waiting in the ionosphere to be unleashed in storms in the atmosphere. We have seen the electrical connection of thunderstorms to the ionosphere in the appearance of giant lightning bursts to space. These electrical displays have been named “red sprites” and “blue jets”.
From an electrical viewpoint, the vertical winds are not the cause of charge separation because charge separation already exists; the winds are driven by electrical discharge activity. But in a tornado or hurricane the discharge takes on a familiar circular motion, whereupon powerful electromagnetic forces constrain the discharge to what has been called a "charge sheath vortex." Here, the energy of the discharge goes into driving the vortex, imparting to it a devastating power, though visible arcing (lightning) may be minimal.
But it seems that in the most powerful manifestations of the charge sheath vortex, charge separation in the wall of the vortex itself can manifest lightning. And if so, meteorologists would be well advised to expand their investigations of lightning, hurricanes, and tornadoes into the realm of plasma physics.

The up- and down-drafts, the in- and out-flows, would be atmospheric responses to "dark discharge" electrical currents more than to temperature differences. Furthermore, the suspension of particles--charged dust and polar molecules (water)--would be largely a result of electrostatic forces sweeping both particles and air along in the electrical field of the discharge. This would explain the spherical shape of hailstones, for example, which do not show the distortion that would be expected if they were formed by being blown upward by strong wind friction forces.
This leads to the more general idea that all weather may be caused, or at least influenced, by the electrical interactions between Earth and the surrounding plasma. Because this larger possibility has never been considered, critical tests have not been devised that would distinguish between the competing explanations. But there are tests that cast doubt on the prevailing theory.
Convection is well understood. The theory of gas behavior in a convecting system is developed with great exactitude. But the weather forecasts derived from convection theory are more than mere applications of theory: They are also tests of that theory, and a wrong forecast is a falsification of the theory. The significant fraction of erroneous forecasts by weathermen is an indication that the theory is missing something. The Electric Universe suggests that what's missing is a consideration of the electrical properties of plasma.

Did you intend to post this in after hours?
Yes, and I did that. I tried to delete the post but your system won't let me. Feel free to do so if it makes you happy. As an ambassador, on the whole wouldn't you prefer Ruritania?

The phrase has never been more fitting: The Tipping Point. In matters of human thought and perception, the words describe the critical moment when the growing momentum of a new idea overrides the inertia of prior beliefs. A movement exhibiting this power cannot be turned back.
For the Electric Universe community, The Tipping Point means evidence converging from every scientific discipline. Unique predictions of an electrical paradigm fulfilled. Charged bodies in space powered by electric currents across interstellar and intergalactic distances. A model of electric star-formation bolstered by an explosion of new evidence for our electric Sun. Planets sculpted by electric arcs in an age of solar system violence. Comets discharging electrically as they plunge through the Sun’s electric field.
Now new dimensions of the Electric Universe are attracting visionary scientists, artists and students of the human story. An ancient sky animated by electrical dramas affecting every level of human culture. The electricity of life–layers of subtle energy that theorists simply overlooked in their rush to formulate mechanical models of life. Studies of human consciousness and connection that shattered the scientific paradigms of the 20th-century.
The Tipping Point is indeed at hand. In the scientific quest to understand our natural world, the 21st-century will look nothing like the last.
Join us at EU2013 for a three-day exploration of interdisciplinary science, an event designed to break the bounds of conventionality. Discover the universal role of the electric force, from microcosm to macrocosm, where virtually every new surprise points us in the same direction. And find your own connections within a movement that will shape the future of science.

Featured Speakers at the Conference:
Featured Speakers
This past year has seen a tremendous surge in interest from highly accredited scientists, though not all of those coming into collaboration and critical discussion with The Thunderbolts Project can be publicly announced. However, some like Rupert Sheldrake, Mae-Wan Ho and Stephen Crothers have agreed to speak. Others will be selectively announced in coming weeks.
Please note: For personal reasons at this time, Don Scott is not expected to attend, though the possibility remains that the situation could change.
Rupert Sheldrake, PhD
Many scientists like to think that science already understands the ways of the natural world. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. The impressive achievements of science seemed to support this confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology. Rupert Sheldrake shows how the sciences are being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. Should science be a belief-system, or an exploration? Sheldrake turns the dogmas of science into questions, opening up startling new possibilities. For example, the “laws of nature” may be habits that change and evolve. The Fundamental Constants may not be constant. Minds may extend far beyond brains. Memories may not be stored as traces in our brains. Sheldrake will suggest that the sciences would be better off without their dogmas: freer, more interesting and more fun.
Rupert Sheldrake PhD is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and 10 books, including Science Set Free (September 2012). He was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge University, a Research Fellow of the Royal Society, Principal Plant Physiologist at ICRISAT (the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics) in Hyderabad, India, and from 2005-2010 the Director of the Perrott-Warrick Project for research on unexplained human abilities, funded from Trinity College, Cambridge University. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and a visiting professor at the Graduate Institute in Connecticut. He lives in London.

Mae-Wan Ho, PhD
Mae-Wan Ho, Director and founder of the Institute of Science in Society, is best known for pioneering work on the physics of organisms and sustainable systems and the liquid crystalline water of the living matrix. She is also a staunch critic of neo-Darwinian theory and the biotech industry. Much in demand as a public speaker and a prolific writer, Mae-Wan has more than 170 scientific publications, 18 books, and over 500 popular articles and essays across all disciplines. Having retired in June 2000, Mae-Wan continues to teach as Visiting Professor of Biophysics at University of Cantania, Italy. Now her mission includes a global initiative to reclaim science and art for the public good.
Dr. Ho will speak on “Life is Water Electric” during which she will emphasize that electricity from water energizes and animates life and enables each single molecule to intercommunicate with every other. It is truly the means, medium, and message of life, “the rainbow within that mirrors the one in the sky.” This is the subject of her latest book Living Rainbow H2O (2012).
