There is agreement on the general process, but the details are not completely known, particularly for the roughly 75% of lightning events that are incredibly difficult to study. We have a much better understanding of cloud to ground, because it's easy to find someplace to put the instrumentation, but that only makes up about 25% of events. There's a great deal of research going on, and we don't know it all yet.

I am not claiming that there are not physical principles involved in lightning...just that there may be more to it than just physics.
