	Have to look up the exact numbers, but the equivalent voltage of the
ionosphere with respect to earth is of the order of 400 kV, and the
average current flowing (due to lightning bolts) is of the order of 1000
to 2000 amperes.  The product of those two is only about 400 to 800
megawatts at best.  It's true that energy comes from the some, but the
charging of the ionosphere is a rather inefficient mechanism.  There is
a lot more energy available from strategically-located windmills.
