Both in the earth’s atmosphere and on the earth’s surface, electromagnetic forces of a understandable nature act. Despite the fact that these forces are quite substantial, their participation in the phenomena occurring on the Earth’s surface and in the Earth’s atmosphere is traditionally ignored. Such a tradition does not allow explaining the nature of a number of phenomena occurring both in the Earth’s atmosphere and on the Earth’s surface, for example, the distribution of charges in the direction perpendicular to the Earth’s surface, in particular, the distribution of charges existing between the Earth’s surface and the upper atmosphere. In particular, such a tradition, thanks to which a tornado is considered solely as a result of mechanical interactions, does not allow us to understand its true nature and, as a result, to suggest ways of its destruction. Since this may have worldview significance, this article is intended to draw attention to electromagnetic forces that act in the Earth’s atmosphere and on the Earth’s surface.
