Wind is essential

After a few days without wind warm, moist air would not move around and precipitation would cease. Water might still evaporate but it could not travel. The sea would be fine but everywhere else would get very dry, very quickly. Small lakes and land away from a large body of water would dry up. Plants, animals and humans would slowly die from dehydration; as most water would be salt water or ice. Even if man managed to survive this there are other concerning problems. The equator would no longer shed its heat as quickly so it would become very warm in those regions, mountains might remain cool enough to be habitable but nowhere else would be. The North and South poles, deprived of heat from the equator, would freeze solid.

There are the basic effects but it basically boils down to one thing: plants and animals would die.
