When someone mentions exploatation of an electric (electrostatic) energy from clouds one would instantaneously imagine a gigantic capacitor (or some other sort of an "acumulator" for such energy) and a loud BANG(!) when thunder strikes it and polirizes it all at once; but isn't it possible to somehow create some sort of a specific "electrode" that would drain only the wanted amounts of electric energy from the clouds in a safe way, and leave the rest in clouds?? Further more - someone might say that there are no clouds all the time, but ionosphere is much more constant - isn't it? Can ionosphere be exploated in a similar manner? (Sounds formiliar? (...)) Can ionised particles be affected by some electromagnetic field in such a way that you asign them a frequency, and you put a reciever (a "bait") anywhere else in range which runs on same frequency, so it resonates and allows the electricity tu jump toward receiver? (or is it just some nice old science fiction? does this have any sense at all?) So what do You say?
