Special conditions:
PEC began January 30, 1970 as two groups, the Environmental Planning and Information Center of Pennsylvania (EPIC), a 501(c)(3) organization, and the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, a 501(c)(4). EPIC was renamed the Pennsylvania Environmental Research Foundation and merged into PEC in 1973 with the merged organization granted 501(c)(3) exempt status, with lobbying permitted according to Section H of the IRS Code.

Self-Description: Pennsylvania Environmental Council, Inc (PEC) is a statewide organization with five regional offices that work to revitalize communities, protect working farms, preserve critical wildlife habitat, protect lakes, streams, and rivers. Recognizing that decisions relating to energy use and current trends on climate could significantly impact the state's natural resources, PEC is committed to developing programs and policies that address these issues.

Actual: A grasping eco-octopus with masked tentacles. Aside from operating  Point Lookout Farmlife and Water Preserve and an online "nutrient credit trading" market to improve water quality, PEC most importantly incorporated  Enterprising Environmental Solutions, Inc (EESI) in 1999 with its own board, but retained total control of the new group, which in 2004 began using the assumed name of Center for Climate Strategies (CCS) to lobby state governments to adopt their emissions trading systems and recommendations for controlling climate change by their team of experts, some highly credible, others less so. State governments were generally unaware of CCS's linkage to advocacy-based PEC and were misled to believe that CCS was independent and not an advocacy organization. In 2009, EESI changed its name to Center for Climate Strategies in corporate filings in Pennsylvania. It remains unclear whether PEC retains total control over the Center for Climate Strategies.
