I spoke at the top of the page of the "habitually poor approach to physics" adopted bythe spokespersons for the electric sun hypothesis, and this is an excellent exampleof that habitually poor approach.
This is an important point, because it shifts tothe champions of the electric-sun hypothesis, the responsibilityfor showing that their hypothesis is better than the standard.

I contend that thedetailed & powerful predictability associated with standard theory far outclassesthe prose-based sentimental approach of the electric-sun hypothesis.
hypothesis - Potato VS. Lemon power energy
Have you ever felt a painful “ZAP” while jumping on a trampoline or getting out of a car but weren’t quite sure who you should blame? Ever walked past a television and all the hairs on your arms have stood on their ends but it wasn’t even cold? Have you ever sat awake at night and could swear there was something sitting in your cupboard staring at you? Well live in fear no longer, as chances are you were merely the innocent victim of static electricity—except for the monster in your cupboard.
We predict the lemons will produce more voltage then potatoes
Static electricity is again the culprit with our balloon and can. When you rub the balloon on your hair you’re moving around tiny little pieces of electricity called electric charges. There are two kinds of electric charges, positive charges and negative charges. By rubbing the balloon on your hair you’re taking negative charges from the hair and transferring them to the balloon. The balloon ends up negatively charged and the hair becomes positively charged. Positive and negative charges are attracted to each other so the hair tries to stick to the balloon. It’s the same with the can. The can has both positive and negative charges and its positive charges are very attracted to the negative charges on the balloon, which causes the can to roll towards the balloon.
Is this a good hypothesis for a science project
The ultimate source of static electricity comes from the interesting properties of atoms—the tiny pieces of matter that make up all of the materials in our universe, such as water, tables, rocks and even us. Atoms are often visualised as miniature solar systems with a positively charged nucleus (where the sun would be), made up of neutrons and protons, being orbited by negatively charged electrons arranged in ‘shells’. Under normal circumstances atoms are neutral. They have no charge because the positive charge of the nucleus is balanced out by the negative charge of the orbiting electrons.
However, electrons aren’t necessarily stuck forever to any particular atom. To a certain extent they can move around and it’s this movement which creates the static charge. When objects come in contact they can sometimes exchange electrons. This is called (warning: scientific jargon alert!) contact induced charge separation and results in one material (the material that loses electrons) becoming positively charged and the other material (the material that gains electrons) becoming negatively charged.

The magnetic effect of minerals like magnetite was known to the ancient Greeks. Around 600 BC, a Greek philosopher, Thales of Miletus, investigated the static electric effect of amber and wrongly classified it as a magnetic effect arising out of friction. However, later in modern times, electricity and magnetism were proved to be the two manifestations of a single force of electromagnetism.
