International regimes allow states to satisfy their interests by facilitating cooperation with others (Keohane 1984, 6). Regimes alter incentives for states to make cooperation rational for states so as to satisfy their interests without altering those interests or identities (Keohane 1984, 26). States cannot get everything they want by themselves, so they need to work with other states to achieve their goals. Regimes make it easier for states to work together. They regularize interactions, they establish some ground rules, and they benefit all parties involved.

In essence, we (the general public) must place our faith in the process of science and those employing the scientific method.
