With all the dams in the world (I believe its a third of the rivers in the world), we have slowed down the speed the world spins around, only a tiny tiny tiny amount!The supposed slowing of Earth's spin is theoretically due to the change in the rotational inertia of the planet by redistributing some of the mass of the water into the basins of these dams. That means that some dams must speed the rotation if this is true, which is questionable.
Will something similar happen with wind turbines?
