If it is true that we live in a universe in which every possible future exists, then world destroying events don't matter at all.

Yes they do!

I don't want to live in one of the worlds that are going to die, so I'm going to do my best to make this world not be one of those (though I know that's not quite how it works ).

Knowing that the world is deterministic does not change anything from our perspective, or relieve us of moral responsibility. It all ads up to normality!
