Worlds Hottest Chilli Pepper

What now a new bhut jolokia or hotter ghost chili ........Yet again there appears to be a new hottest pepper in the world. The title passes on once more. This time to a Taiwan farmer, beating the previous worlds hottest pepper an Australian who said two months ago that his chilli was the most fiery. This new as yet un named chilli comes in at up to 1.5M Scoville units. Hotter than the Trinidad Scorpion Butch T, unveiled by Australian Marcel de Wit, and yes its hotter than the recent Naga viper, bhut jolokia and ghost chili!

Yeh's laboratory determined the heat unit of his chilli and he said he would send it to the New Mexico State University laboratory for certification in autumn. In the meantime, he planned to debut his chilli Sunday at a chilli-eating contest in Taipei.

Check out a picture of the farmer and the new chilli here Will the New Mexico State University validate this new chili heat level and who will be the first to make a sauce from it?
I would love to know where I can get my hands on some chilli seeds for this pepper and also whether you will need protective clothing to handle the chilli!
