Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually the fallout of cosmic ray impacts goes all the way through the earth (what is not absorbed quickly in the atmosphere and crust). The LHC will generate more carefully calibrated events (angle, energy band), and its particular band, it will generate in a few years more events than cosmic rays in centuries. But cosmic rays generate every years a few events that are several orders of magnitude larger than anything LHC can produce.
