Lightening as Renewable Energy
"Move over solar, wind and wave power—there’s a new renewable on the block. Researchers are experimenting with devices that can pull electricity from the air." Wired Science explains: "For centuries, scientists have been fascinated by the idea of harnessing the power of thunderstorms. Nikola Tesla experimented extensively with the topic, but significant understanding of the field of atmospheric electrodynamics has until recently proved elusive. Fernando Galembeck, of the University of Campinas in Brazil, presented a report at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society that detailed a future where every house has a device on its roof that pulls cheap, clean electricity out of the air."
