Oh man it is the same argument over and over again, claiming that Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays are of magnitude far beyond the LHC, while it are actually Iron nuclei and the protons within have roughly the same energy as those of the LHC. Besides that they never talk about the density and frequency that is a billion times higher in the machine than in nature.
