In a rain cloud, we have loads of water drops collide in a turbulentturbulent way. They impact hydrogen ends first!
With heavy rain, we overcome the strong atomic force, which his why rain storms give off radiation.
They convert some of the water into He2+ and O2-. These bond with other water molecules, so we end up with He2+ and H2O.OH-.
So we have loads of charged water molecules, and first flight He nuclei. So the positive charge goes up into space, and the negative charge falls to the ground as charged water molecules.
Guess what; lightening is a discharge of negative charge from the clouds, to the earth, which is earth! In time it will gain the positive charge from space, but we see massive electric bolts of negative charge hitting the ground!
Before the down stroke hits the Earth over the next few hours, positive rain drop by positive raindrop. Earth, we get a positive strike up into space! But as water clouds do not carry charge around, we end up with a negative ligtening charge, anda few hours later, positively charged rain drosp hittingthe Earth
