Earth as energy absorber

  1. Mar 26, 2006 #1
    Dear Russ,
    I got into an dicussion with a grounding expert, he claims that the earth is just a conductor while i stated that earth is an energy absorber. Try to think up of ways to justify my claim, posted it on General Physics.
    I know it stinks, but is there any hope for my claim or should I abandon it. I've tried some post on the archive but theyre to high tech for me.
    please help me, to know the correct ideas to hold.
