Indigenous Europeans Dying Out

That's not alarmist rhetoric, just demography. It's called negative momentum.
In Europe, where older generations are larger than younger ones, negative momentum arises as subsequent generations have fewer potential mothers. Thus, even if women begin having more children, a tendency to decline can persist for decades, simply because there are fewer women of childbearing age.
"Negative momentum has not been experienced on a large scale in world history so far. It is now like sailing against a current running toward population shrinkage and aging."
Not only are women having fewer children but they are having them later in life. Thus the indigenous European population shirks dramatically over the next several decades.
Perhaps we should put Swedes and Italians on the endangered species list.
