in the kind of storm clouds that generate conventional lightning, ice particles and soft hail collide, building up positive and negative charges, respectively. they separate into layers, and the charge builds up until the electric field is high enough to trigger lightning.

but the specific mechanism by which particles of differing charges are separated in the ash cloud is still unknown. lightning has been observed between the eruption plume and the volcano right at the start of an eruption, suggesting that there are processes that occur inside the volcano to lead to charge separation.  

volcanic lightning could yield clues about the earth’s geological past, and could answer questions about the beginning of life on our planet. volcanic lightning could have been the essential spark that converted water, hydrogen, ammonia, and methane molecules present on a primeval earth into amino acids, the building blocks of life.

The early suffragists, the women who fought for and eventually won for women the right to vote, were also characterized as unlovely, irritating women. Looking back at their struggles, we may wonder what all the fuss was about—why was there so much resistance to something that now seems so reasonable, so normal? But if we had been there at the time, would we have been distancing ourselves from them, saying things like, “I’m not one of those suffragists, but I do support women’s right to vote,” just as many people now say, “I’m not a feminist, but I do believe that women and men should be equal”?
