    Earth Day 1970 Part 10: Earth Week 1of3 Philadelphia (CBS News with Walter Cronkite)

    – [Walter] One of the biggest Earth Day observances was in Philadelphia, where an estimated 20-40,000 persons gathered in perfect weather in the city’s largest park.

There were many organizational problems, including a heated controversy over whether to accept financial aid from industries causing pollution. David Culhane followed the Philadelphia story from its start to today’s colorful demonstration. (upbeat hippie music) – [David] Fairmount Park in Philadelphia today.

    Yosemite Nature Notes – 9 – Frazil Ice

    [Music] We’re on Yosemite Creek below Lower Yosemite Falls, it’s a cold early April morning, and we’re watching the frazil ice formation. Frazil ice are these small crystals of frozen mist that forms in Upper Yosemite Falls and Lower Yosemite Falls. The particles of ice wash down the stream with the liquid water in a flurry, a slushy, slurpee, goopy mass that in many cases flows like lava. So if you can imagine in your mind a giant slurpee machine that is putting out millions of gallons of slurpee into Yosemite Creek, it’s amazing; it’s not snow, it’s not ice, it’s something in the middle and to watch it move…
