I bet you if Pluto became a red giant it would get reclassified in a real hurry. That and of course I'm pretty sure such radical changes to the gravitational pulls of our solar system would find us really frickin' screwed.

i wanna say negligible, but i don't have the calculation to hand. might even be beneficial in clearing out a few more asteroids and comets.



from a very simple simulation of the solar system (only sun, earth, jupiter, and pluto present; circular orbits run for 100k years), blue line is earth's orbit with pluto being pluto-massed, yellow is earth's orbit with pluto being jupiter-massed.
dF = 0
d*F = J

It's really hard to grasp just how far away Pluto is, or even just the outer planets, and just how "inner" the inter planets are.  There's a great solar system walk on the Lowell Observatory campus, you pass Earth after a few steps and then you walk and walk to get out to Pluto.  Standing on Pluto at noon the Sun would just be a bright star in the sky, no heat from the Sun, solar panels would be useless for power.

I wouldn't worry about that too much. Now if JUPITER disappears in the next 10 years, that's when I'd start to worry.
