Can it be turned to generating energy so that it's more eco-friendly and not wasted?

I find these natural phenomena fascinating and intriguing and would love to watch them up close and personal but wish many would happen in isolated areas where there is no threat to life be it wild or other...nature is often destructive and beautiful...a contradiction...one sees beautiful butterflies dance in the air by lovely hibiscus flowers and then one can see a tornado suck the life out of a once populated area.
