Global temperature raise 1.9°F per year. Many people don't understand that with the melting of glaciers caused by global warming, the rising sea level will overwhelm many coastal cities like Tokyo."+1.9°F" consists of two parts, a glacier-shaped candle and a tray engraved with city's altitude. When the candle is melting, the wax oil will flow into the tray, then slowly swallow the city's altitude. Every time you use it, you will consider that are you willing to sacrifice glacier and the city just for a momentary light?
