Contrarotating Coaxial Mirror Hurricanes

Synthetic hurricane, on top of the original one, but goes the other way.
  [vote for,

Assume for a moment that it is possible for humans to have some effect on the weather. Assume further, that it is possible to synthesise an artificial hurricane. If it were possible, then it would also be good if it were possible to calibrate the hurricane speed, spread and rotation direction. What we'd have to do is copy the natural hurricane and superimpose an 'anti-hurricane' inverse copy of it, on top of it (or actually, in it).

That way, the hurricane will cease. Not sure who pays for all this, though.

       That's going to be tricky. Hurricanes derive their rotation direction from the Coriolis force.   

       It would probably be cheaper to use an existing second hurricane and just flip it over. Or just borrow one from the opposite hemisphere.

       Drove one of those. Just a gussied-up Honda.
