It is the enormous amount of energy is released when lighter nuclei fuse to give a heavier nucleus as in the sun.
pros: it could generate a large amount of energy
cons: there is no technology to harness it unless it a hydrogen bomb
If possible it could be renewable resource.

You should watch this youtube video (made by a company in fusion research) it provides a good overview of fusion, the benefits, the different types etc: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7RqT9i5f4c
