NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Middle Tennessee congresswoman is set to appear on Meet the Press this Sunday, where she will go head-to-head with a public television icon.

U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-7th District, will take on Bill Nye "the Science Guy" over climate change.

It's been a hot topic lately, since we're in the middle of one of the coldest winters in decades.

Blackburn serves as vice chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Nye - the former host of the popular 1990s PBS show - recently grabbed headlines for debating creationism and evolution at the Creation Museum in Kentucky.

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is also scheduled to appear on this week's Meet the Press. You can watch it Sunday at 9 a.m. on Channel 4.
