Popcorn futures shot through the roof on speculation that Sarah Palin would debate Bill “the science guy” Nye about climate change. But alas, the showdown was just hype.

Instead, the former Alaska governor and GOP running mate may take part in a panel discussion about a movie that includes Nye, the former TV show host.

As NBCNews.com reported:

“Palin will participate in a panel discussion following the screening of the documentary ‘Climate Hustle’ on Thursday. A video featuring an interview between Bill Nye “the science guy” and Marc Morano, one of the film’s producers, will be shown during the panel, as well.

“The documentary created by the conservative think tank Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, will also be screened nationwide in a one-night engagement in select cinemas on May 2 presented by Fathom Events and SpectiCast. The point of “Climate Hustle” seeks to “debunk[s] the myth and hype about man-made global warming,” according to a CFACT press release.

Palin told Variety: “I’m very passionate about this issue. We’ve been told by fearmongers that global warming is due to man’s activities and this presents strong arguments against that in a very relatable way.”

Nye may carry the debate to social media, however.

Expect others to be disappointed.
