Is there any relation between pollution, climate change and a possible increase in thunderstorms?

Is there any relation between pollution, climate change and a possible increase in thunderstorms?    
Nowadays, around 25 million lightning strikes impact the earth every year. In relation to the frequency of the lightning strikes, some research studies point out that the heat and a rise in temperature are related to cloud electrification. In fact, it is known that during the summer, thunderstorms are more frequent. This reasoning could make us think that if the climate change produces a global rise in temperatures, an increase in lightning events could be produced.
Smart Homes: problems and solutions for overvoltages in the electricity grid    
More and more buildings and houses have electronic devices that allow for a more efficient and comfortable home: thermoregulation, sophisticated security systems, all kind of automations, remote controllers, energy management systems, several interconnected devices…There is no doubt in there being a trend for domotised homes which will increase, given how these technologies mean an important improvement in the quality of life.
Lightning rod maintenance: How and when it should be done?    
Lightning rods must undergo periodic inspections and maintenance, as indicated by national and international regulations (UNE21186, NF-C 17 102, IEC EN 62305). These periodical lightning rod inspections enable to detect deviations from reference standards or anomalies in the installation caused by environmental conditions, such as corrosion, incorrect handling, or other circumstances, such as expansions of the building where the lightning rod is located.
Losses and insured costs produced by lightning    
Lightning causes significant damages and losses all around the world, especially in those areas with high frequency of thunderstorms or during the summer months. It is estimated that there are about 2,000 active storms every day and that approximately 40 lightning bolts per second on Earth, which means about 1200 million strikes per year. Some researches suggests that there could be an increase in electrical storms due to climate change and pollution.
