The Biggest Loser (of infrared radiation)

What if the google street view car were recording in infrared, too? What would that do for public awareness of energy inefficiency from leaky building envelopes? Even more than energy meters running backwards, this could provide a concrete image of heat loss, that might encourage the use of tighter standards like the Passive House certification?

We're picturing a new kind of show: the Biggest Loser of Infrared, where the hosts drive down neighborhood streets, looking for inefficient houses to attack with a crack team of insulators and retrofitters.
