A dirty thunderstorm (also, Volcanic lightning) is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume. A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges, just as ice particles collide in regular thunderstorms.
Make the world a better place… that’s not what the human race does. We make it worse. We always have. If we’re not killing each other, we’re killing whales or buffalo or bald eagles, what have you, and if we’re not doing that we just pollute everything so nothing else can live here anyway…. We are capable of wisdom and compassion and genius, but most of the time we just throw it away. We yearn for meaning and then we squander it on drugs and television. We are corrupt. We are not good.
