Shale deposits are basically

one of nature's ways of sequestering hydrocarbons that existed eons ago. Unlike clathrates, which are frozen, that trapped methane will escape to the surface when the shale's cracked, and then it will rise into the atmosphere. It's simply impossible to stop all fugitive methane from doing this, but that's no reason to *not* force the industry to reduce it however it is scientifically possible. And if that added cost causes them to stop fracking entirely, then that's what should happen..
