Re: The long view

While it's true that the Sun's radiated power is increasing over time, this is such a slow process that we can simply ignore it: we need to worry about still being here (or about an advanced civilisation still being here) in a hundred years, not still being here in half a billion years.

(not that the whole thing is not interesting: it's just not the global-warming problem we need to be worrying about right now)
