Predicting 2012...with science: Michio Kaku on what to look out for in the new year

The world could end about a year from now on December 21, 2012...if the Mayan calendar is correct, that is. We here at American Morning aren't going to rely on some primitive astronomy.

If you want to make decisions based off what could actually happen next year – listen to Michio Kaku, a child prodigy who's become one of the greatest minds of our time. He's a top physicist at City University of New York who has picked up where Albert Einstein left off.

Kaku wrote the book "Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100" and in the book he talks to hundreds of other scientists to piece together what our life will look like in the next century.

This morning on American Morning, Kaku joins Ali Velshi to share with us with a glimpse at what's possible in 2012.
