Natural gas

can you explain fracking and the pros and cons of natural gas?

Pros - It contains fewer impurities, emits almost no sulfur dioxide or particulates. Emits only 60% as much carbon dioxide as coal.

Cons - Methane that escapes into the atmosphere is a potent greenhouse gas. Exploration for natural gas using fracking can contaminate groundwater.
