Con

Fracking, also known as hydraulic fracturing, is drilling deep underground to extract oil or natural gas. With drilling underground at such high pressures there are chances of lines breaking, drinking water becoming contaminated, and particles released into the air causing air pollution.

Pro

Fracking is another alternative way in which to access oil, and can assist many communities economically through job creation and revenue.
