environmental tort:
(1970)

1. A tort involving exposure to disagreeable or harmful environmental conditions or harm to & degradation of an environment (e.g., the pouring of acid on golf greens).  An environmental tort is usually harmful to land rather than people, though people may find it unpleasant (e.g., odors from a landfill).  By contrast, toxic torts involve exposure to harmful substances that cause personal physical injury or disease. [1]
