A MAN who was prudent enough to buy a 12th floor flat is sure that he has no need to worry about any future four-foot rise in sea levels due to climate change.
Tom Logan bought his flat in a block in Walthamstow and is convinced he is ‘future-proofed’ against any flooding that might devastate his less farsighted downstairs neighbours.
Logan said: “I’ve imagined all the apocalyptic scenarios – New York and the entire Eastern seaboard submerged, Norfolk gone, significant parts of London four feet under or more.
“Luckily, I don’t have to worry about any of that up here. I am, quite literally, high and dry.
“While the poor folks downstairs will be swept out of their flats by the rising tide, swimming desperately for safety, clinging to their furniture to stay afloat, I’ll be putting my feet up, watching satellite TV and taking advantage of my well-stocked fridge.
“I’ll be looking on from above at the poor sods who were daft enough to buy low-level residences drowning in the rising waters below.
“And if I do happen to run out of food, I can always ring Deliveroo. It’s called survival of the fittest – and the wisest.”
