Similar questions were once asked about nuclear war and any other possible
end of the world scenario. Yes, these things could happen, but again they
may not, at least not in the next few hundred years. My personal point of
view is that it is sensible to do whatever is possible within reason to try
and preserve my life, but there is no point in trying to evade events that
it is impossible to to evade. I can see no argument in favour of not making
cryonics arrangements because of any of the myriad things that could go
wrong. At least you have given yourself a chance.
