Earth to go splat on the Sun like bugs on windshield.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.

1 No doubt it's happened elsewhere, but the idea of it happening to Earth specifically, as claimed in the headline, is ludicrous absent some sort of really dramatic perturbation of the system. It would take a close pass by another star. If another star approached to being about as close to the Sun as Neptune, all bets are off. But without that kind of event, not gonna happen.

Everything I've read is that the Earth will be destroyed when the Sun goes nova and becomes a red giant, about five billion years from now. I'm not too worried.

2 Nor am I, but now we know why the Weekly World News has gone out of business.

They can't compete with a state-subsidised newspaper like Pravda.

3 Anyway, we know it can't happen because it would be solar-caused global warming, and there is no such thing.
