Purveyors of the Planet X conspiracy theory, also known as the Nibiru or Wormwood cataclysm, believe a rogue planetary system is on a collision course with Earth.
Nibiru is believed by many to orbit the Sun every 3,600 years, each time bringing with it widespread chaos and destruction across the surface of the planet.
But not every conspiracy theorist searching for the signs of the impending end times believes in Nibiru, and Mr Richie appears to be in that camp of conspiracists.
Looking at skies above he said: “I don’t see it.”
Addressing the growing fears of destruction at the hands of Nibiru, the popular YouTuber questioned whether chemical sprays and shields in the skies were keeping Nibiru hidden from us.
The self-styled conspiracy expert’s startling revelations about the Nibiru doomsday theory were shared online in a video titled “Nibiru or is it Wormwood they are hiding?”.
Standing outdoors on a relatively cloudy day, Mr Richie said: “You can see the mountains and the cliffs and everything else behind me but look above me.
“I’ve watched them spray this last night and I know you can see it. It’s Sunday.

“Last Sunday when I drove into this town I had never seen chemtrailing quite as bad and normal unawake people were even noticing it.
“They spray the skies so bad on a Sunday and then only intermittently on the week and then again last night they nailed the sky unbelievably.
“What you’re looking at right now is a solar shield. That’s what it looks like.
“So the idea that they’re hiding another planet or there’s another sun and all this other stuff – I don’t see it.”
Instead Mr Richie launched into a chemtrailing conspiracy tirade, alleging the mysterious “they”, are spraying the skies with substances such as barium, strontium and aluminium.
It isn’t Wormwood, it’s probably not Nibiru. I don’t think any of that even exists
He stressed this is “no longer a secret” but well established fact which he has been exposing via his videos for the better part of the past year.
He added: “It’s crazy.”
But what about the threat of Nibiru? Has the conspiracist dealt a shocking blow to the Planet X theory by agreeing it is nothing more than an online hoax?

Mr Richie said: “The entire sky is totally white. So it isn’t global warming, it isn’t to hide another planet, it isn’t Wormwood, it’s probably not Nibiru.
“I don’t think any of that even exists. I don’t think Wormwood is what people think it is.
“I think they’re just poisoning us, because they’re going to change history, or they’re going to attempt to change history and the biggest thing they would face would be what’s been going on from time immemorial.
“Elders passing down wisdom or information to new generations.”
Nibiru hoax: Mr Richie claimed the skis are being poisoned by chemtrailing
Although Mr Richie’s claims about Nibiru’s non-existence were reassuring to many conspiracists in the comment section, the world’s leading scientific experts have been saying the same thing for decades.
Space boffins at NASA blasted the fake Planet X hoax when it flared online.
The US space agency said: “Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims.”
