Hawking: Higgs boson in a BIG particle punisher could DESTROY UNIVERSE

I'm seriously struggling to get worked up about this threat to our existence. A quick googling tells me that we have observed a number of particles with energies in the region of 5.7*10^19eV which is about half what would apparently cause the universe to melt. I seems that theoretically the universe should be able to produce particles with powers up to 10^21eV as well

Since the universe apparently still exists I'm going to go out on a limb and say either something was lost in translation or this isn't much of a threat.
