There is a fairly interesting sci-fi story[0] about an ever-increasing world-wide wind, I recommend it, and hope it doesn't go that way.

There was also a sci-fi movie I watched as a kid that is set in a post-apocalpytic earth in which a constant wind belt around the earth that people 'sail' to get around. Does anyone remember?

I do not, but if you case about identifying the story, the SciFi SE[0] is incredibly good at it :)
