Michio Kaku's cardinal sin is having too much fun while musing science.

The "serious" scholars and scientsts have never been able to accept that some people make science of history fun by their infectious love ot their discipline.

Add to that naked envy on the part of some of those guys working in obscurity for someone who somehow gets the attention of the public and Michio is defeinitely going to have critics.

Physics of the Impossible is actually a pretty good read...

Dr. Kaku is very entertaining when he's discussing modern physics... But the things that he has written and/or spoken about the Gulf oil spill, climate change, the Japanese earthquake, tsunami & nuclear incident have been almost illiterate. He needs to stick to his specialty.

Abandoned Colony in Greenland - Archaeologists find clues to Viking Mystery

From English Language Der Spiegel (includes six pictures)

http://www.spiegel.de/international/...-a-876626.html

excerpt #1
For years, researchers have puzzled over why Viking descendents abandoned Greenland in the late 15th century. But archaeologists now believe that economic and identity issues, rather than starvation and disease, drove them back to their ancestral homes.

excerpt # 2
From Farmers to Seal Hunters
The scientists conducted isotope analyses on hundreds of human and animal bones found on the island. Their study, published in the Journal of the North Atlantic, paints the most detailed picture to date of the Nordic settlers' dietary habits.
As the research shows, hunger could hardly have driven the ancestors of the Vikings out of their settlements on the edge of the glaciers. The bone analyses prove that, when the warm period came to an end, the Greenlandic farmers and ranchers switched to a seafood-based diet with surprising rapidity. From then on, the settlers focused their efforts on hunting the seals that appeared in large numbers off the coasts of Greenland during their annual migrations.
When settlement began in the early 11th century, only between 20 and 30 percent of their diet came from the sea. But seal hunting played a growing role in the ensuing centuries. "They ate more and more seal meat, with the animals constituting up to 80 percent of their diet in the 14th century," explains team member Jan Heinemeier, a dating expert from the University of Aarhus, in Denmark.
His fellow team member Niels Lynnerup, an anthropologist and forensic scientist at the University of Copenhagen, confirms that the Vikings of Greenland had plenty to eat even as the climate grew colder. "Perhaps they were just sick and tired of living at the ends of the earth and having almost nothing but seals to eat," he says.
