One of the big contentions of the Warren S Carey's EXPANDING EARTH concept (slip cover version online here) popularised spectacularly by Neal Adams Growing Earth videos is, "Where does the extra matter needed to fuel the 'growing earth' come from?"
Our own nearest star, our Sun, is pouring out billions and billions of tonnes of highly charged particles (protons etc.) every minute along with radiation, heat and light. We call these Coronal Mass Ejections. The lovely NASA video above shows how (were this an Electric Universe not a nuclear one) such 'exchange of matter' takes place from the Sun to Earth. This could fuel what some scientists call a LUDICROUS GROWING EARTH theory.
And if it's an Electric Universe, the orbits of a 'growing earth' wouldn't necessarily change as the Earth (in fact all planets) grew because all such plasma-generated bodies orbit the plasma-generated Sun on specific resonance distances from source. No matter how BIG any plasma-generated planet got, that's where it would be - with relation to its parent; in our case, the Sun.
If Adams'/Carey's 'expanding earth' is correct then, it seems like the radius of the earth has double from 3,200,000 meters to 6,400,000 meters over the last 70,000,000 years i.e. a rate of 0.045 m (4.5 cm) per year. Either it does this smoothly every year and/or it does it in expansionary fits and starts dominated by solar activity.
For this Electric Universe theory to be at all valid, though, we have to assume that the Sun is hurling matter-generating plasma at the earth almost every day, more so when there are solar maxima, and that is (somehow) causing the magma to accumulate/foam up/or otherwise expand, pushing the solid landmasses of the Earth further apart. It's a mental idea but I'm given the image of that scene from Fifth Element where the evil planet expands when it's fueled by nuclear rocket attack. Look, I really like this daft theory, even though it HAS TO FLY in the face of all modern contemporary religiously military-war funded Science that we're told to believe; that we're encouraged to 'make work'.
NEW SCIENTIST SUPPLEMENTAL: Mystery ring of radiation briefly encircled Earth, is the title of this piece. And this New Scientist article is unsurprisingly about, wait for it, wait for it, a NEW RING OF RADIATION that 'encircled the earth' before DISSIPATING.
When the Van Allen probes started taking data on 1 September 2012, one of these mysterious events was already under way. "We came in the middle of the movie there," Baker says. But otherwise, he says, "What we expected was what we saw when we first turned on: two distinct belts, separated."
That changed a day later when, to the team's surprise, an extra ring developed between the inner and outer ones. "We watched it develop right before our eyes," Baker says. The new, middle ring was relatively narrow, and its electrons had energies between 4 and 7.5 megaelectronvolts - about the same as in the outer Van Allen belt during an acceleration event.

One editor's dissipating might be just as easily be another planetary core's absorbing. The 'temporary' belt of radiation sat between the inner and outer Van Allen belts in September of 2012, according to NASA.

Maybe such temporarily trapped radiation belts power the Growing Earth mechanism? Who knows? NASA? Sure, why would NASA know about an Electric Universe - they tested it themselves when Deep Impact hurled a COPPER (i.e. highly electrically conductive) projectile at comet Tempel 1 back in 2007. Remember the massive pre-impact plasma flash that overloaded the detector module's instruments?
NASA GODDARD SPACE PLASMA LECTURE 2009: and as illustration of NASA's understanding of the Electric Universe, we need only go back to 2009 when plasma engineer, technical author and space enthusiast Donald E Scott presented his "Plasma Physics' Answers to the New Cosmological Questions" lecture to the engineers and astrophysicists of NASA. I suspect this was only one part of a multi-part acclimatisation within NASA of the Electric Universe, and all its great wonder. Big Bang is dead, long live Electric Universe.
