Hey @Tom, you can use the lookup plugin to print environment variables. To print multiple env variables, just modify your arguments a little, something like this:

- hosts: all
  gather_facts: False
  tasks:
    - name: Multiple environment​ variables in a single line ansible task
      debug:
        msg: "{{ lookup('env','USER','HOME','SHELL') }}"

output
------
"msg": "root,/Users/user,/bin/sh"

This will it print the envs of local machine, not of the managed node.
