The perfect tornado dome (r) accessory!

This device consists of the following:

A set of 1 kilometer high towers support a huge block of frozen air, pool of liquid hydrogen, or a radiator filled with an environmentally friendly coolant at a very low temperature.

Beneath them an equally massive pool of almost boiling water is maintained.

Hopefully a tornado will develop.

edit:

bonus:

Put these in unpopulated tornado-prone areas to spawn tornadoes away from the cities, equalizing air temperatures and sapping tornado energy.

       Maybe the hot water needs to go around the edge of the base and the frozen air towards the center? Might that work better?   

       A few massive jet engines powering at a 45 degree angle around the edge might also start the swirling needed to kick-start the vortex.   

       Lastly, 1,000 pounds of glittering confetti to feed into the tornado will just top it all off!   

       :) Bun!
