The Shoreline Solar Project will be hosting a presentation by Christy Nordstrom, a volunteer presenter of The Climate Project’s slide show based on former Vice President Al Gore’s book and movie, ”An Inconvenient Truth” at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday Jan. 17 at Meridian Park School, 17077 Meridian Ave. North, in Shoreline.

Nordstrom, of Seattle, has recently completed a certificate training program led by Gore to spread the message about the climate crisis and solutions to global warming.
