In several countries, current electricity retailing arrangements make it possible for consumers to buy green electricity, either by purchasing their electricity from a generating company that uses only renewable technologies, or by buying from a general supplier who undertakes to buy at least as much power from renewable sources as their "green" customers purchase.

 A Green Flash Page
Green flashes are real (not illusory) phenomena seen at sunrise and sunset, when some part of the Sun suddenly changes color (at sunset, from red or orange to green or blue).
As the area that turns green is ordinarily near the limit of the eye's resolution, these are sometimes called “green dot” displays.
There is a distinct, but related, phenomenon that really deserves the term “flash.” In this much rarer display, a green flash of the ordinary kind is followed (at sunset) by a brief ray or glow of green, which often appears to shoot up from the sunset point.

 Amazon.com: Green: Music: R.E.M.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
I was in college when this album first came out, and I remember being disappointed overall at the effort -- GREEN was a real departure for REM at the time, insofar as that it largely left behind the jangle and obfuscation of earlier albums in favor of a big, clear and mainstream-friendly "rock" sound.

While many bands tend to experiment with disparet sounds and styles, as if they suffer from some sort of dissociative syndrome and can't connect with whom they really are, all of the songs on this album bear the distinctive stamp of REM's sound and style.
