The "smoke like gas" emitted from nuclear power stations is water vapor. And though water vapor is technically a "greenhouse gas", the amount emitted by nuclear power stations is a drop in the bucket compared to all the other sources of water vapor. However these gases are released at high temperatures, so they are injected high into the atmosphere.

Nuclear power produces far less emissions than a coal-burning power plant, but it is not entirely "emissions-free", as some people claim.

To dig up the uranium and extract the ore produces between 10 and 50 tonnes of carbon dioxide for every tonne of uranium oxide.

A normal nuclear power plant producing 1000MW needs 200 tonnes of uranium oxide per year, which means between 2000 and 10 000 tonnes of Carbon dioxide per year, just mining the fuel. Not to mention the carbon from the shipping of the fuel.
