Main Question or Discussion Point

Q.) What would happen if a *reverse-Tokamak* was created, thus reversing the electromagnets to a negative charge and repelling electrons into each other instead of fusing hydrogen nuclei, what approximate temperature would need to be used and would it work? If so what would occur?

Electrons can't release energy by fusing, i.e., there is no bound dielectron.
