Carbon emissions question

My friend had his birthday party Sunday. He's 45, but they used nine candles (4+5=9).
Under cap-and-trade, does he get credit for 80 percent reduction in his carbon footprint? (using only nine candles instead of 45).
Or will he be taxed for burning nine candles, especially since he only blew out six on the first breath.
Are these silly questions? Or is someone in Washington thinking about the environmental impact of birthday candles?

Obama will now appoint a Birthday Candle Czar.
