Q: Did you make this candle to raise awareness about global warming?
A: Oh lord no. Is anyone still unaware of global warming? If you know someone who hasn’t heard about global warming, please DON’T give them this candle. Instead, give them a stiff drink, and tell them you have some terrible news that they’ll want to sit down for.

Q: What does it smell like?
A: Smoke, because of the burning of fossil fuels, and water, because of rising ocean levels.

Q: Don’t all candles smell like smoke? At least, once you light them?
A: Well, a little, I guess. More when you blow them out, actually. But this is really a woodsmoke scent.

Q: Woodsmoke? Wood isn’t a fossil fuel. Is wood-burning a major source of greenhouse gasses?
A: Look, if you don’t want to buy the candle, don’t buy it. No one is forcing you to buy the candle.

Q: Don’t candles themselves contribute to global warming? Insofar as they are something you light on fire?
A: If you start burning candles at night instead of turning on the lights, you’ll probably reduce your household’s carbon footprint. BUT! Since you’re not going to do that, we’ve taken the liberty of buying carbon offsets that exceed the carbon in each candle. (And all the other candles we sell.)

Q: Is there any special significance to the specific buildings on the surface of the candle? It looks like they’re representations of real-life buildings.
A: Yes! One is the headquarters of Fox News in Manhattan, and the other is the headquarters of Koch Industries in Wichita.

Q: Why them? It seems pretty unlikely that rising sea levels will swamp Wichita.
A: Sure. But it also seemed pretty unlikely that a handful of giant oil companies would manage to trick half of America into thinking climate change isn’t real, so I guess you never know.

We donate 10% of the proceeds from this candle to organizations working to fight climate change. Currently, donations are going to 350.

Smells as though it was made from whale oil derived from those proud beauties of the ocean washed ashore near Atlantic wind farms on eastern US seaboard. I applaud the use of the dead whales, but perhaps they would be 2-star quality if the blubber was harvested before it rotted on the beach.

The only good thing about global warming... this candle. A utter delight. I was afraid of swamping it with my tears for the world, but it is so well made, it will still burn. How cool is that? Or warm?
It was intended as a gift, but I like it so much I don't want to part with it. Guess that means I have to buy another one. would have been smarter to get it all done in one go.


This candle, the humor, the fast shipping—all of it—are as good as climate change is bad.

So—very very very good.

Too funny!

Not sure how I stumbled across these but the humor is brilliant ( as they say). I’m giving this one and the pandemic candle as Xmas stocking gifts to my millennial son and his girlfriend and I hope they come away thinking I’m much more clever & hip than they could have possibly imagined
( oh ok, my son thinking that is probably a lost cause, since he’s seen way too much in his 33 years, but I’m hopeful I have a shot with his younger girlfriend) sigh.

I’m hoping other candles come back in stock soon.

Will you be making more of these?

I am posting here because I need to know if you’re making any more of these. What a great idea!
