So that wont work?
But scientists thought of a better solution than mass evacuation to other planets. How about if we moved the entire planet?

So why the heck do they want to move the Earth?!!

Having said that, I don't know that much about "the laws of celestial mechanics" to know if an increase in the volume of the Sun would push the Earth outward or not.
