--env-dump, because I consider that a common abbreviation ("man 1 env").

OTOH the whole thing is about voltages, fans and temperature sensors, right? 
Then there's a package called lm-sensors, so why not --sensors 
or --sensors-dump? "Environment" is also quite ambiguous, and the -s is still 
available, so --sensors* would be my favourite.
