While it is the belief by many that mainstream scientists reject any notions of extraterrestrial civilizations or aliens, Kaku is very unique. Not only does he believe in ETs, he also lays down a framework for their existence in his numerous books.
Kaku in his book Hyperspace compares humans as fish in a pond, only aware of the environment around them, not realizing there is a huge world outside the pond.
A Type 1 Civililization is one that is truly a planetary society, which has mastered all forms of terrestrial energy.
A Type 2 civilization is a civilization who have an energy output of a small star. They would be so advanced that they could build a sphere around their planet to maximize their energy output.
A Type 3 civilization is so advanced that they have begun colonizing other star systems. Their energy output is massive compared to ours. A civilization this advanced would be able to bend space and time at will. They would probably be capable of interdimensional travel and even time travel.
So where are we here on planet Earth? Well, we are Type 0.

If any of you can, check out the video "Alien Planet" it appeared on the discovery channel Hi Def a few months ago, there are reruns but I am not sure of the exact times. He and a slew of other scientists provide commentary to a theorized expedition to another planet capable of supporting life. Very good show. Also I remember he was on a UFO files episode called "Alien Engineering" this was also very good.
