This. The Kaiju eventually wipe out every line of defence we have, overrun the world and either the Precursors take over or we press the suicide button and turn the planet into a nuclear-devastated hellhole for the next however many years.

where the actual hell did you read that? we have the tech to turn the surface and maybe a km or so down into molten slag, but not to acually desroy the plane itself.
This. We could easily render the planet uninhabitable with our current nuclear stockpiles, even ignoring the fallout we could turn the whole surface to glass, but we've never been able to outright destroy it.
Unless you want to de-orbit the moon, and we can't do that either. We haven't even stood on the lunar surface since the 1970s, how are we getting several hundred Orion Drives up there to shove it back down at us?
