It means inexperienced and that meaning is far older than the ecology related meaning. :)

When fruit is "green" we know that it is not ripe, not at its best. More time is needed to reach its best taste and presentation.

I think this is what the speaker meant: Obama is not ready yet to assume the huge task of being the president of the USA.
