It causes earthquakes. That's a pretty dang large drawback all on its own.

I get that clean technology needs time to be efficient and cheaper and all that, but solar and others have been around a long time already and we've partially not adopted them in a widespread way because we have all these stopgap fuel sources. I don't know enough about fracking to say it's better or worse than oil, coal, etc., but it is another non-renewable fuel and renewables are the way we need to go.
