What Earth would look like if it rotated backward

Due to the Coriolis effect, the dominant ocean currents in the North Atlantic move in a circle clockwise, delivering warm water from the Caribbean Sea up to Europe, making Europe temperate instead of frozen like the same latitudes in North America.

The dominant wind patterns in the world, based on a similar force, take humid air and winds away from North Africa, forming the Sahara desert.

With the earth spinning a different direction, the Coriolis effect would make these areas be flipped opposite to the other side of the Atlantic ocean, settling the Sahara in the U.S. and giving most of Europe the climate of Northern Canada.
