Don't let the smile fool you.

In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain")
is one of a host of female figures who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live.

the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin.
The deceased warriors become einherjar. When the einherjar are not preparing for the events of Ragnarök, the valkyries bear them mead.

Ragnarök is a series of future events, including a great battle, foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the Gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors.

Global warming ?
