What is known about the impact of renewables on climate?

There is almost a witch hunt over claims of climate damage from conventional energy production but has anyone thought about the impact of renewables? If we take energy out of the wind or the waves, surely that has effects on climate. For example, as rain falls in a different place or seas silt up. What is known about the impact of renewables on climate? Do we need to do more research before we blindly cause a different climate problem?

  1. There is no serious impact on climate of using renewable energy sources. Probably there are very small issues that one may want to study with respect to the microclimate. The ones mentioned in the question are of that sort. What happens to the climate if we take the energy out of the wind? What happens to the climate if we take the energy out of the waves? The impact (if any) is only based on the microclimate of the specific area (some square km).
