Question: According to the law of natural selection rabbits should be green - are there no green mammals?

Many rabbits look for food in the snow, so they camouflage themselves quite well in that habitat. There are also rabbits that are brown, which I assume would help keep them safe in warmer climates.

The brown colour of rabbits is probably the most effective and versatile colour for camouflage.
In the British Isles natural selection has also 'preferred' brown to green in female birds as well as mammals such as rodents, deer, female birds etc. etc.
There are green mammals - Green monkeys for instance. Or mammals with some green colouring, such as the Mandrill.

I think you've got a skewed view of natural selection. Natural selection does not work by creatures adapting to their environments, it works by minute random mutations being cummulatively selected over very long periods of time. This selection process works through the more successful animals surviving to reproduce thus passing on thier successful mutations. So, as said above, the brown colour of Rabbits seems to have been the most successful one rather than green. Because this is what we see it MUST be the most successful outcome of natural selection.

Here, linked, is a rather full explanation of why mammals aren't found in lovely shades of green:
