Description

We can dress up in woolly protective clothing.  The microbes can’t.  They live happily (one can imagine) in extreme cold, extreme dryness and extreme saltiness as well as other conditions that would see us off.  Some even like it very hot.  Come and hear about this continent which is idyllic for microbes.

Paul Broady has a background in biology and a long-term interest in climate change. He has studied some of the remotest regions of our world and is passionate about sharing his knowledge with others.
