What are the risks of fracking and can they be reduced?

Could technology help in the current energy crisis?

How quickly could natural gas be fracked and how quickly could energy be obtained through fracking in the field of geothermal energy?

How would that affect the climate targets?

These and other questions will be dealt with today in a live debate entitled: "Fracking in Germany: Risky technology or a way out of the energy crisis?".
