1. Introduction to the Charged Sheath Vortex and the Tornado:

I developed these theories many years ago when I couldn't reconcile what I was teaching my students with the accepted theories of these natural phenomena, and devised some simple experiments that probed what was going on. However this wasn't the main focus of my professional work and I didn't have the resources to continue  research in this field.

However interest in these theories continues and some research groups are exploring these ideas, and so far they have not been refuted.
