    If Hydrogen is produced via a chain reaction in thunderclouds, it might be possible to reproduce it in a lab using high voltages and a fuel cell arrangement. It seems Hydrogen production is not linear with temperature. It will not be linear with applied field strength or voltage as well.

    The down side of producing hydrogen with ease froom water might be that it would put a very highly explosive gas at the hands of terrorists and empire builders. The empire builders might like to cover it up. They might even prefer to sell petroleum and have a bit of global warming to avoid the risk.

    You have a lot of very new ideas to take in, antimatter and fusion reactions in the thunder clouds I suspect only happen in huge thunderclouds and are not caused by normal lightning clouds. Tunguka was caused according to eye witness reports by a slow moving glowing ball in the sky, monster lightning balls actually sound more plausible than ufos antimatter and the various other explanations given.

    Reaction rates increase with increasing temperature because there is more thermal energy available to reach the activation energy necessary for breaking bonds between atoms. Electric fields can also break bonds between atoms, if these are increased reaction rates will also increase.

    Guessing Hydrogen fusion bombs are ignited by fision reactions, causing immense heat 10000000C, as found near the surface of the sun. In a thundercloud a similiar thing might be achieved by more than one hydrogen explosion reacting with oxygen, causing a fusion reaction in hydrogen to take place.

    +ve discharge to ground is most likely +ve Hydrogen ions, not positrons. positrons will annihalate almost instantly around any material containing electrons,

    Lots of food for thought! I Like the idea of high voltage pulses, but be careful not to microwave your self! 10 to 100Mhz is microwave frequency, turning the voltage up, might tare the bonds apart more quickly in water vapour, be careful hydrogen is explosive.

    To be of any use you need more output energy than you put in, have you done any calculations.? or made any guesses? I am guessing you would be guessing

    Hydrogen auto ignites at around 700C when combustion takes place it burns with oxygen at around 2500C, which is enough to start disassociation of water into H2 and O, with a little extra kick from an electric field it might just cause a chain reaction. But then again it might not. It cant be that simple. I must be missing something.

    The NASA Fermi lab detected positron originating from terrestrial gamma ray flashes, the positrons don't instantly get annihilated .
    Oscillatory mechanical systems are kind of like chemical redox reactions. 😕
