Seeing thta the Earth is 4.5 Billion years old, and the sun won't become a threat to the Earth for another one billion years, I don't think humans need to worry...there won't be humans around then anyway. Modern Humans have only been around about 250,000 years, which is less than a fraction of blink of an eye when compared to the age of the Earth and the timescales we are talking about (for instance, 1 billion years ago was even way, way before dinosaurs existed).
That's not to say there will not be another intelligent species Earth that will need to worry about this (maybe whatever species humans will eveolve into). But even if they can get off Earth and to another solar system, they would still need to worry about THAT star destroying their world in the next billion years.
