Poznan Talks "Merely Adequate," According to EDF

Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) reports on the Poznań climate summit:

EDF officials claimed the "overall results of the Poznań talks were 'merely adequate' and called on world leaders to work harder to reach a shared agreement to stop global warming before temperatures rise 2ºC.

"We got the bare minimum of what we needed from the talks," said Jennifer Haverkamp, EDF's director for international climate policy. "We got a clear mandate and timetable to go forward, but there's a lot to do and less than a year to do it. The wait-and-see game must end."

All talk and no action...I'm tellin' ya.

Since when is "merely adequate" acceptable? (Outside of US auto industry management, of course.)
