Coriolis Effect causes strong winds in the upper atmosphere, and it's purely due to differences in the linear velocity of Earth's rotation across latitudes.
Now the Earth is spinning with the energy it received while it was born from the sun 4.5 billion years ago. There has been no more energy gain in terms of rotation, right?
Now, if, theoretically, we placed flying windmills to harvest the strong winds caused by Coriolis Effect, the energy has to come from somewhere, right? And that has got to be from the earth's inertia.
So would this stunt slow down the Earth over time?
