Clean burning gas

1. Methane burns to release energy, creating water and CO2.
    So gas is cleaner, not clean.
    Cleaner than what? Cleaner than coal.
2. Uranium does not burn to release energy.
    Does this make nuclear cleaner than gas?
    Consider the whole life cycle.
    The mining, the waste, the accidents.
