Look at it this way, the asteroids closest approach will bring it to within 4 lunar distances (approx. 1 million miles) to the earth. It is roughly 2 1/2 miles long and 1 1/2 miles wide in size. Compare that to the moon which orbits the earth at a distance of roughly 230 to 250 thousand miles and has a diameter of 2100 miles (somewhat more than 1/4 the earth's diameter). Suffice to say that the asteroids 'environmental affect' would be negligable.

The asteroid is 4179 Toutatis, there are some amazing radar images of it on this NASA site, it's a pretty weird looking object i'm sure you'll agree.

http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/images/toutatis.html

Orbit simulation: http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/db?name=4179

At closest approach on September 29th it will be about 1.5 million km away.
