There is still "some" pollution from the nuclear plants. Why do you think they need to store the "waste" for 100+ years before it can be used?
renewable aka solar,wind,geothermal, ect. They still have initial consumption to build the plants, but make no waste out of them. Same with fusion/fission plants, i get the two confused.
pollution from appliances or machines... If your talking from the machines themselves, most do not. Gas burning stoves im sure release a small amount of carbon because i can't imagine burning off a molecule will turn something useful. Then you have smoke if you burn something
As far as the big picture, unless your off the grid, you are creating pollution by using anything that requires electricity. It's that whole you don't see it because its in the middle of no where, kinda thing?
Anyone can chime in
