Plait mis characterized the plasma discharge comet model.
If you are going to rebut a hypothesis you should first understand it. You can't rebut it (nor confirm it) if you don't understand it.
I believe it was Niels Bohr who said that scientific revolutions happen when the old guard -- those who refuse to give up the old model -- die off.
The next generation embraces the new model -- and takes it for granted.
W*gs represents the old guard -- too rigid in his thinking to make the urgently needed paradigm shift.
May they and he die off soon - so that we can move forward and save the planet. Good riddance. Sayonara.
