Is a vegan diet sustainable in colder countries, Sweden ,Norway, etc?

Joey Lusk,
Also all northern countries, including Norway where I live, would easily become self-sustainable on a plant-based diet.

You can easily calculate the arable land, how much plant-based foods that can be grown and how many it can feed.
I did a calculation that a plantbased agriculture in Sweden could feed almost 80 million people: http://bloganders.blogspot.no/2013/06/kan-hela-sveriges-befolkning-leva-som.html (in Swedish)

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 [2].

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 [1]. 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???
