Wind, surely, is cleaner than just about anything. I simply do not know if it is sufficient for large scale consumers, like industry. Also, wind is not without effect on the environment. For starters, large wind turbines are plain ugly. The wind farms tend to kill some number of birds. Also, the wind turbines are noisy, which bothers people and wildlife alike. I have heard reports on NPR of wild animals coming in more contact with people in areas where wind turbine farms have pushed animals away from usual hunting grounds. As I said before, no power source is problem-free.
As far as nuclear energy not being clean - do you see other problems than fuel/waste storage?
