I see only a red and a green wire coming out from ceiling box. What are they and how do you connect them to a ceiling light?

Normally red or black is the hot wire and green is the ground. However someone may have used the green wire as the neutral wire which is normally white.

If not you have to pull the wires out of the ceiling box and see how they wired it.

How do you install a ceiling fan with black white green wires when the junction box has black white bare and a red wire?

White = neutral. The white wire of the voltage in simply connects to the white wire of the fan. The green wire of the fan is the equivalent of the "bare" wire of the voltage in. Tie them together or connect both to a metal junction box. The black wire from the switch (voltage in) should be the "switched" leg of the circuit. If the fan has both a black and a red wire, they will control the light and the fan. If you have separate switches for those circuits, connect them separately; if both are controlled by the same wall switch, connect both the red and the black to the BLACK wire of the voltage in, then you will be able to control the fan operation by the separate fan pull chain switch.
