Update 2:

In spite of the enormous danger that the Daiichi nuclear plant in Fukushima poses to the global community, especially the Norther Hemisphere, TEPCO has no plans to begin removal of the more than 1,500 fuel rods from No. 4 reactor building. (I believe these are fuel rod assemblies, however on that issue, I am not sure.) Evidently, TEPCO is now an earthquake expert (Heavy sarcasm)  and must possess knowledge the rest of the global community remains unaware of, or in the alternative, are downright negligent and fail to understand that another earthquake could strike that area today, tomorrow, or in 10 years. This is something that cannot be predicted by anyone, and I believe that it's time for the United Nations Security Council to address their obvious criminal incompetence! (Criminal because they are endangering their own nation as well as the entire world.):

UPDATE: No moving spent fuel at No. 4 until 2014 at earliest -- Up to 10 years for removal of fuel from all pools -- Reactor building to be demolished (VIDEO) Published: April 17th, 2012 at 3:45 am ET

Title: Workers prepare No.4 pool for fuel removal
Source: NHK
Date: Tuesday, April 17, 2012 11:17 +0900 (JST)

[...] Before the [No. 4 reactor building] can be demolished, more than 1,500 fuel rods have to be removed [...]

On Tuesday, Tokyo Electric Power Company will begin attaching a special crane to take the fuel out of the pool and constructing a cover to prevent the spread of radioactive materials from the building. [...]

Unlike the shroud that entirely covers the No. 1 reactor building, the structure will cover only the upper part of the pool [...] (My emphasis)

TEPCO will also install a filter to prevent the spread of radioactive materials.

The cover is expected to be completed by autumn next year. Spent nuclear fuel will then be removed [...]

Will this include any work on the weekends? See: Weekends off at Fukushima: Not one plant worker could be seen says Asahi -- Operational equipment lay idle -- A cold eerie quietness

UPDATE via Wall Street Journal: "Tepco says it's working to remove the fuel rods as fast as it can. If all goes according to its timetable, the utility could start taking the rods out in 2014. [Senator] Wyden points out, though, that the schedule allows up to ten years to get all the spent fuel in all the Fukushima reactor pools out" LINK

This is an excerpt from the ModernSurvivalBlog.com , and I urge you to read the rest of the story they have posted and what the effects of Buildings 3 & 4 would have on the United States and the rest of the world. Hopefully, extremely soon, we will have a petition to address this situation to be delivered to the U.S. Congress and the United Nations Security Council, a it isn't just us in the United States whom are at risk:

Surviving The Fukushima Nuclear Fuel Pool Collapse

The current TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) plan calls for the nuclear fuel rods of the severely damaged "Daiichi' nuclear power plant fuel-pool #4 to NOT begin removal until possibly 2014. That's right, 2 more years before they might start the 10-year process of removing fuel rods there according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
