Former TV weatherman Dave Eichorn talked climate change Tuesday at the Skaneateles Lake Watershed Agricultural Program’s annual meeting.
His message to the crowd? Climate change is happening, and the Northeast does not have the infrastructure to handle upcoming changes.
“We need to start thinking in the back of our minds now about preparing for rapid, abrupt changes in weather, and what used to be normal just isn’t anymore,” Eichorn said.
Retired after nearly two decades on NewsChannel 9, the meteorologist is now a meteorology instructor at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He was the final presenter at the program’s meeting at the First Presbyterian Church in Skaneateles Tuesday.
