“In the electric comet model, the electrified plasma environment of the Sun allows for two-way transactions that are inconceivable if interplanetary space is truly a neutral plasma medium, rather than a quasi-neutral medium.In 2003, as comet NEAT raced through the extended solar atmosphere, a large coronal mass ejection (CME) exploded from the Sun and appeared to strike the comet, causing a “kink” to propagate down the comet’s tail. Of course, for solar physicists the timing of the mass ejection could have no connection to the approach of the comet.SOHO has, in fact, recorded several instances of comets plunging into the solar corona in “coincidental” association with CMEs. But the scientific mainstream allows for no electric force external to the Sun to have any influence on the Sun’s atmospheric behavior.But how would an electric Sun respond to the approach of a relatively small but strongly charged object? In electrical terms, the influence of the comet could be far more significant than its trivial mass in relation to the Sun.What will occur electrically if the charged plasma or “atmosphere” of the comet interferes with the isolating double layer of the Sun’s plasma sheath?Perhaps the observation of Nobel Laureate Hannes Alfvén, the father of plasma cosmology, can put the issue in context. It was his opinion that coronal mass ejections are caused by a breakdown or breach of the Sun’s double layer – an event that provokes an explosive exchange between the insulated plasma cell of the Sun and the plasma of surrounding space.”
- Destruction of electrical transformers and long-term power outages
- Damage to satellites and GPS systems
- Increase in earthquake and geophysical activity
- Stray ground currents with potential damage to undergournd, ill-maintained pipelines (therefore disruptions to fuel supplies). Having had personal experience in the petrochemical industry of underground bulk storage tanks being punch-holed by stray electrical ground currents, I would be concerned by the potential ecological and other consequences of such events.
- An increase in extreme and bizarre weather events
- Social unrest and upheaval
