I am interested in helping the environment. What is the best major and school?

I want to do research to help stop the environmental problems because I really care about the environment. What would be the best major and university for this? I don't want to end up in some sort of city water tester job...I really want to be focusing on the bigger issues affecting our planet today. What would you recommend?

Economics, Auburn University in Alabama. If you want to help the environment you have to understand why people have incentives and think it is in their interest to do things that might harm the environment, and you need to know how to give them incentives that help it instead.
