Nereid, this is where the anti-science liars have the advantage.
But since Nereid won't answer the question and won't discuss the peer-reviewed papers, I suggest she study both electric 'double layers' and the peer-reviewed papers.
By the way, even these myriad excuses don't offer a reason why Nereid won't discuss the three published peer-reviewed papers on "magnetic reconnection".
Oh, and just to make it easier on Nereid, here is the link to the Wikipedia entry for plasma double layers it's like spoon feeding a child medicine that tastes bitter — but is good for them .
So, when Nereid is backed into a corner, she won't answer and provides myriad excuses for failing to do so.
Nereid, study the wikipedia entry for plasma double layers and the three published peer-reviewed papers, linked on this thread, and anybody else for that matter who is still following this thread, and the answer will be obvious.
Nereid, you can analyze & interpret the Wikipedia entry and the papers can't you?
Admitting double layers and "magnetic reconnection" are the same structure would give too much credibility to Plasma Cosmology, and Nereid just couldn't abide by that — it defeats her purpose for being here.
Nereid, you took the Scott quote out of context and inserted in this thread, why?
But apparently Dr. Svalgaard has the same opinion on magnetic reconnection and double layers as I had although I didn't stated it — my lame excuse: the questions were directed to Nereid, shame on me.
