Someone modeled the climate of a retrograde Earth (one spinning in the opposite direction):

Due to the opposite-direction Coriolis forces, everything would be wildly different. Deserts, forests, tundras, all moved around.

This is really interesting. To extend your point it seems that oceanic gyres and circulation is the key driver in all these changes.
