Having studied such things, living in the lightning capital of the world and having accidentally photographed myself being struck by lightning, I thought it was common knowledge that volcanoes produce "dirty" lightning. Massive forest fires do the same thing as well.
By the way, there are far better (non Soros/NBC owned) options to get and provide this information than TWC

Great Pic! And I wonder if the global thingamabob people factored in regular events of the Earth puking billions of tons of fine particles into the atmosphere to block out the sun. Naw..
