IF YOU thought 2016 was a bad year, 2017 could herald the apocalypse as the much speculated Planet X is set to arrive, according to conspiracy theorists.
Paranormal researchers have been investigating the possibility of Planet X for several years now, and some believe that it is now travelling towards Earth.
Research scientist David Meade claims that an entire different solar system is on a collision course with our own and that Planet X, which the conspiracy theorist believes is actually a star, and its gravitational pull will cause widespread destruction here on Earth that will ultimately lead to the end of humanity.
Mr Meade, an author who wrote the book ‘Planet X – The 2017 Arrival’, believes that the devastating Planet X will bring with it “seven orbiting bodies”, including Nibiru, a large, blue planet.
The conspiracy theorist believes that the star system is difficult to spot because of the angle that it is approaching Earth.
Planet X will bring widespread destruction to Earth next year, say conspiracy theorists
Mr Meade wrote in a piece for Planet X News: “This system is, of course, not aligned with our solar system’s ecliptic, but is coming to us from an oblique angle and toward our South Pole.
“This makes observations difficult, unless you’re flying at a high altitude over South America with an excellent camera.

“As it intertwines and approaches it, will come from our south and loop all the way to the extreme north, then come back south again as it exits our orbital path.”
He adds that the evidence is “overwhelming” .

A spate of seismic activity this year, especially across the Ring of Fire in locations such as New Zealand, Chile and Japan, is due to the approaching star system and its intense gravitational pull, while the author also claims that it is wreaking havoc on many other aspects of the planet.
Mr Meade concludes: “Earthquakes have dramatically increased both in number and intensity.

“The public is being kept in the dark deliberately to avoid panic.
“Storm systems are multiplying both in type, intensity and size.
“Sinkholes and cracks are appearing in the earth’s crust. Heatwaves are getting stronger and are lasting longer.”
Eventually, all of these factors will build to a point where life on Earth, or the planet itself, is wiped out.
