After we lock it up, what can we do with the locker?

Another lost draft being published late . . .

Researchers have found a way to dramatically speed up the formation of the mineral magnesite. Magnasite formation removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Normally this process takes many, many years but they say they can shorten that to days . . .

So if all goes well we’ll be producing magnesite as fast as we can . . . which brings me to the question: What is Magnesite good for?

The Wikipedia article on its uses lists many. But a lot of them involve burning it and release the Carbon. What else could mega-tons of magnasite be used for?

Most things I do involve computers. Nowadays that sounds stupid to hear because everyone uses computers. Except I was saying that before the IBM PC came on the scene. (hint: my first programs were entered on punch cards in an IBM-29) Now I mostly use them. Mostly to provide a community service in my small town. Because I could when it was asked and still can. And I'm a wannabe writer. Various books in various states of incompleteness. A few short stories. Might do more of that.
