That is a hard question. Here are some I can think of. Chernobyl in the Ukraine in the 1986, Bhopal, India in 1984. The Love Canal is another. Here is a link to some of the worst environmental disasters of all time.
This current oil spill in the gulf could be the worst ever since it is now expected to continue leaking oil for another week. Here is a list of the top 10 worst oil spills ever.

Depends if you mean NATURAL disasters, MAN MADE or what?  for sure the biggest Natural disaster would have been the K5 (I think thats the right name) the asteroid that hit the earth and killed nearly everything alive at the time (dinosaurs.. etc)
