Great Britain, Europe and the world and sustainable vegan plantbased agriculture
If we start with a completely plant-based agriculture, we will eliminate starvation and poverty. See e.g. this article that I wrote about Bangladesh: http://bloganders.blogspot.no/2013/04/cause-of-injustices-in-bangladesh-eg-in.html and this article .
You can choose to enslave, raise and kill an innocent cow on pasture to feed one person, or you can choose to use the same area (about at least 8000m^2 per cow) to feed 36 persons for one year . Potatoes and nutrition: http://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2008nl/may/potato.htm

In a vegan just world, where everyone cares about everyone else – humans and nonhumans, feeding all of the population will not be a problem at all!!
Which would you choose???
