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
a tornado will develop.
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?

needed to kick-start the vortex.
||Lastly, 1,000 pounds of glittering confetti to feed
into the tornado will just top it all off!
