Fracking is the new and controversial source of gas and fuel oil.

An influential group of MPs from across parliament say fracking shouldn't happen in the UK because it will stop us meeting future carbon emission targets. They think the extra fossil fuels should stay in the ground and not be burned.

I agree. If we don't cut our carbon emissions in the UK and globally, climate change will be much worse than it needs to be. Fracking for more gas and oil is not part of the solution.
