The clock is ticking for climate change mitigation. Geoengineering is gaining ground as an option, but it needs to be examined at a large scale to determine its effectiveness and associated risks. Enhanced weathering will be investigated by the Leverhulme Centre for Climate Change Mitigation in a special facility at Illinois, US, in four hectares of corn fields over a period of ten years — a big step up from current modelling studies and small laboratory experiments.
