Summary:"Deep underground lie stores of once-inaccessible natural gas. There's technology, called hydraulic fracturing, or """"fracking,"""" that can extract this natural gas, potentially powering us for decades to come. So how does fracking work and why is it a source of such heated controversy? Mia Nacamulli explains the ins and outs of fracking."
