One difference is that energy gluttons are typically oblivious to how much energy they consume and the source of that energy. Their energy gluttony is a side effect of insatiable desire for material goods, which themselves are often associated with social status.
Nonetheless, steps taken to deal with energy gluttony parallel those taken with food gluttony. Typically these fall into three : educational, political, and technological.
I will examine a fourth, however, best characterized as philosophical. I will show how, by following the advice of the ancient Stoics and training ourselves to care less what others think of us, we can help overcome our desire for social status, resulting in a reduction in our desire for material things and a ificant reduction in our personal energy bill.
The pessimistic conclusion, however, is that most people are probably unwilling to undergo the self-analysis and self-transformation that this philosophical approach requires. Volume 46Issue 4. The full text of this article hosted at iucr.
