You do realize that it is 2009 and that "the middle of the century" is 2050?

You can't predict demography 40 years into the future, as a small change on the short term can have huge consequences over such a long period of time.
All I'm saying is that it is highly unlikely that in 40 years demographics have caused France to have a bigger population than Germany. For such a thing to really happen, there need to be much more dramatic circumstances than today's birthrates and low immigration, which afterall could be different next year (immigration moreso than birthrates).
For some the coast signifies the end of their country and for some it signifies the beginning of the world...
