Where can I make a difference in solving environmental problems?

Hi, I am very passionate about the environment and renewable energy. I want to become and engineer because math is one of my best subjects, and I love that I could be a part in solving some of the problems in our world. I am entering into my second semester of college and trying to decide whether I want to major in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering and focusing on renewable engery systems or Environmental Engineering. What I am wondering is which major will it possibly be easiest for me to enter into a green line of work and are there any states that have more opportunities for these types of engineers? Thank you :)
