Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think this discussion exposes a serious difficulty in how a society might approach infrastructure changes.

Most Americans live in low-density post-war suburbs. There is no provision for district heating or thermal grids, and to retrofit such systems into an existing neighborhood would be incredibly expensive. Even replacing household gas furnaces with heat pumps is very expensive, but at least you don't have to dig up the streets and alleys to put them in.
