Now the land has magnetism and so does are planet via the core/mantle( giant battery) so if the atmosphere is charged in a certain way and the earth
another, the land/crust would move similar to water beads on glass, that's my thoughts anyway.
If you're saying opposites attract, yes that
happens between the Earth and the atmosphere, and the result is lightning, which is when those opposing charges partly equalize and try to resolve the
electrical potential difference.
There's no evidence electric charge causes plate tectonics, which can be explained via convection, which an effect resulting from a temperature
gradient, fluid dynamics, and the flotation of the less dense crust. There is a hypothesized possible relationship of Earth under tectonic stress
creating something like a piezoelectric effect, as Earthquake lights are sometimes observed associated with Earthquakes, but if this association
exists then you have cause and effect backwards, as electrical effects might result from tectonics.
If geology is really your hobby it wouldn't hurt for you to study the findings of mainstream geologists. I don't have my own theory because most of
them know far more about the topic than you and I with our hobbyist perspectives, and their theories sound logical to me. You don't seem to be
familiar with them though from what you said in the OP.
