Climategate is officially closed, an independent review panel in the UK concluded that there was no malpractice by the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit; Australia's wildlife authorities have a new threat of invasive species, the Snakehead fish, which is able to breath air, allowing it to travel on land to find prey or migrate, and the country is also taking action against the a coal-carrying ship - the Chinese Shen Neng 1, which ran around on Douglas Shoals inside a marine protected area in the Great Barrier Reef.
