How bad is the end of the world? It's well, the end of the world, isn't it? It's in the name. How could anything be worse than the end to everything?
But is the end of the world that bad? Let's ask the question another way. The end of the world: who exactly is it bad for?
Suppose something nasty happened today. An asteroid strike. A global pandemic. A nuclear war. AI goes rogue. We all die. Fine, dying is bad for us. But tomorrow, we're all dead. Beingdead can't be bad for us. At that point, there's no 'us' for anything to be bad for.
