During the brief interviews that he took part in, Sturrock also
indicated that we know much more about some natural phenomenon
that might be interpreted as "unknowns", and mentioned one of the
photographs they had examined as possibly being the result of
such discharges.  Has there been any comment from those who may
have presented the material to the panel?

Of course, scientists have been known to have severe
disagreements over their theories and general acceptance in the
scientific community (however, that's defined) may not come

The JSE Report is, IMHO, a good first step and one that should
have been taken a long time ago.  But we still have a long road
to travel.
