unfortunately it would never work, unless they were to get some kind of super jet turbine, it is a good thought though but the earth is a million times the size of any wind turbine

theres been alot of wind turbines going up in the uk and recently a good few here in south wales, anyone that drives up or down the glyneath road will notice them perched up on the mountains .
anyways on a recent shopping trip my 10 year old daughter pointed them out and asked me if they could move the earth with them?? i told her i didnt know to be honnest but it was a good question and got me thinking...
if there was some kind of planet about to collide with earth could the governent fire up all the wind turbines all over the world at the same time and it would somehow move the earth or make it spin faster or slower??
might sound daft but theres 1000s of turbines all over the world that could cause some kind of drag on the way the earth spins if they were all knocked on and pointed in the right direction at the same time??
