if the entire population of the the world would switch to a vegetarian diet, there would be plenty of food for all of us. most grassland is being used to grow grain to feed cattle; that and a lot of water. if we used those resources to produce our food, we could end world famine.
the thing is that the people that asks us ar's to be rational on these topics aren't themselves rational in their choices: they like to kill, maim or torture animals because they find it pleasurable, entertaining or useful and these are far from rational reasons.
Is there also a religious sect that you prefer the world to adhere?

Do you believe all world famine is caused by the lack of food? We have plenty of food to feed the world. Famine is more often caused by humans rather than by the weather and growing conditions.
