Clears have a peak of 95cn. Actuation is lower on greens. So clears feel like a car that's braking hard, greens feel like a heavy truck operating normally.

Where are you getting that actuation is lower? This shows is being higher for greens. http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/mechanical-keyboard-guide
It might be higher if you bottom out clears but the bump is pretty sharp so I rarely bottom out the switches.

Clears - https://deskthority.net/wiki/Cherry_MX_Clear Tactile force 65 cN Actuation force 55 cN Peak force ca. 95 cN
Greens - https://deskthority.net/wiki/Cherry_MX_Green Actuation force 80 cN
They're just completely different switch mechanisms. Clears peak higher than green, so if you bottom out keys (which a heavy typist tends to do); They will feel more stiff. You'll feel a heavy friction or braking at the end of every press, which tends to be more noticeable then the linear actuation of the green. Though it requires more force to begin movement; there's no ramp to a peak, nor does the actuation raise to the force of the clears. Clears would only feel lighter than greens if you're softly typing, and never hit peak.
