Last year I proposed the idea that vegetation, in this case trees, is linked to the flow of electricity from the Earth to the ionosphere here, in the presence of ground water. The atmosphere’s thermal state is generally lower under trees than under artificial shade frames. This was because the electric current flowed preferentially through the tree trunks and roots and dispersed into the atmosphere from the leaves, from where it moves to the ionosphere, etc..
Yesterday I stumbled across this report on the internet. It dates back to 2016 CE, and confirms my field observations of the role of electricity in the growth of trees, or in the article, plant crops for food. The basic schematic follows:
One might also take on board the idea that the branch structure of trees and plants follows a Fibonacci sequence, similar to Lichtenberg structures, and easily fits into the general theme of the Electric Earth.
