With global warming, and oceans rising 200 feet, what will our future look like in the next 1000 years?

i predict, that after fossil fuels run out, we will be forced to live a more simple life. with oceans rising, humanity will have to move to higher ground. Valuable farmland will be lost, wars over limited resources will be fought. a new equilibrium will be established, with a much smaller population. How will you and your heirs make the transition in the coming centuries
