Meteorologists are not sure how tornadoes form, but they are often associated with lightning storms. It seems that the key to understanding tornadoes is to think of them as rapidly rotating electric discharges. Just as copper wires carry electrons for power transmission, so do tornadoes. The difference is that electrons are moving at several centimeters per hour in a wire, while flying around at many meters per second in a tornado. The result is that the tornado forms an enormously powerful electromagnetic force field called a "charged sheath vortex."

The recognized source of power that drives the mighty rotational storms are large electric currents flowing in the ionosphere as those shown below, detected by NASA when looking for the emission-signatures of large electric currents flowing in space. These currents flow in long filaments encircling the planets with hot spots at regular intervals, which are shown to coincide with the general locations of the major tropical-storm regions.

The filamentary nature of electric currents flowing in plasma in space is visible everywhere in the Universe, on every scale. We see the same electric filamentary structure in the alignment of stars, typically strung out in short or long strings, though in visible light the currents themselves are not recognizable.  In the image below -- a Hubble image of the globular star cluster M4, a mere 6,000 light years distant -- the string-like structure of electric filaments  is amazingly well apparent in alignment of stars and their regular spacing, similar to the hotpots above along the current filaments in the ionosphere.

Superimposed over the M4 star cluster (a typical cluster contains concentrations of over100,000 stars)  is an artist's concept of a recently discovered 13-billion-year-old planet that orbits a helium-white star and the millisecond pulsar B1620-26, seen near the lower left.

Note, the same pattern of long strings of electric-filament-aligning stars can also be seen in the alignment of galaxies to each other on the immensely larger scale as seen in the Capodimonte Deep Field. below, a view of 35,000 galaxies.

This string-like arrangement of galaxies along the paths of self-aligned electric-plasma currents is also recognizable in extremely distant views, like the one below that lets us see across 500 million light years of space and far beyond that.

In short, the Universe is flush with power, electric power that impacts us daily. Isn't it about time that we begin to utilize it, instead of pursuing such exotic dreams as squeezing energy out of nuclear fusion, as though this was our last resort for having an energy-rich world.

We are presently energy-starving ourselves
