In my continuing quest to save the planet from global warming, please consider the following.Combustion engines, universally used but not very environmentally friendly. Now considering that a combustion engine (such as in a car) is also a reciprocating engine why can`t we change the impulse force to something non polluting.I had the thought that the impulse does not have to be an exploding or expanding gas, what about electromagnetic repulsion.Position a fixed electromagnet where the spark plug or ignition coil would be and another forming the piston, fire them both at the top of the piston cycle and the repulsive force should force the piston down with sufficient force to complete a cycle.This is not the famed perpetual motion machine as it would require electric current to operate but if this was feasible I feel it would be a better alternaive to all those green house gas emissions

Electric motors are simple and efficient. I can't imagine a reciprocating electric engine being either of those things.
