IS it? According to Ash, the majority of humans are eventually airlifted to
safety by friendly cacogens. Creeping winter is a little more prosaic as an
end-of-days scenario, but avoids gigadeath.

The only people (hypothetically) complaining about Ragnarok are the hieros.
The hieros are just teleologically ensuring their own survival, attempting
to make the snake bite its tail. They don't even know if the humanity of
Urth are the ones who will eventually become themselves, but are willing to
drown most of them on the off-chance. With scruples like that, who wants to
be semi-divine?
