Here is my best explanation:

'new to it' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'about to enter the facts' is the wordplay.
'about' becomes 're' (regarding**).
'to enter' indicates putting letters inside.
'the facts' becomes 'gen'.
're' placed inside 'gen' is 'GREEN'.

'is' is the link.
