Hair dryers use heating element and motor-driven fan to convert electric energy into convective heat.

That doesn't just applies to hairdriers, it's a more general law - conservation of energy. Energy can't be created nor destroyed; you can't create energy out of nowhere, but you can't destroy it either.

examples of electrical energy can be lightning,toastor,hairdryer,powercode and batteries.

Look on the data plate on the hairdryer. There you will find the manufacturers specifications as to the wattage of the dryer and the voltage range it has been designed to run on. So the answer is that a hairdryer can be plugged into a 120 volt receptacle if it was designed for use on that voltage. If you want to know the current it takes, you can calculate it by dividing the wattage by the voltage. The answer will be in amps. If the hairdryer is a type that was designed to run only on 230 volts - such as are made for home use in Europe and elsewhere,where they use that voltage as standard - then don't try to use it on 120 volts because you will not get enough heat from it!

No. A hairdryer produces such a small amount of heat that it will not affect the weather. Nothing you can do could ever cause or prevent a tornado.
