Longtime CNY meteorologist to discuss climate change at Cazenovia Forum

— Former WSYR-TV meteorologist Dave Eichorn will share his expertise on changing global weather patterns and their potential impact on our region and beyond when he delivers the next Cazenovia Forum lecture at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, at the Catherine Cummings Theatre in Cazenovia.

The event is free of charge, reservations are not required and a reception will follow.

Eichorn, whose lecture is titled, “Climate Change Through a Meteorological Perspective,” works with Syracuse Media Group as a meteorologist for the Post Standard and Syracuse.com. Previously, he spent 20 years as the on-air weatherman for WSYR-TV local newscasts. Since January 2006, he has given dozens of presentations on climate change with a meteorological perspective to thousands of Central New Yorkers.

Eichorn has worked with SUNY's College of Environmental Science and Forestry and the Syracuse City School District on the “SUNY-ESF/SCSD Environmental Challenge” student science fair. In 2008, he moderated SUNY-ESF's seminar series “CNY's Response to Global Energy and Climate Change Challenges” and has worked with community leaders across the region on local efforts toward the mitigation of our carbon footprint.

As a meteorologist, Eichorn has won awards for severe weather coverage of the superstorm of March 1993, Hurricane Gloria and for educating the public in the science of meteorology. He has held adjunct positions at Onondaga Community College and SUNY-ESF, where he has taught Introductory Meteorology and Environmental Meteorology.

Eichorn has a bachelor's degree in environmental science from the SUNY Empire State College and a master's degree in environmental science from SUNY-ESF. He was awarded the 2010 SUNY Chancellor’s Award for academic excellence.
