Direct use of water & wind

All the conversion to energy then back to use, is it really too late to rethink through the direct use of the wind and water in small scale mechanical action?   Does anyone else like the look of windmills and watermills or the soft plod of a horse pulling a canal boat?  There must be thousands of inventions for small scale direct use of the wind and water.  We're at the point now where we all need to be pooling our creativity and those who have lived previously, to at least try to save those who will live ahead of us.  {Just saying}
