Short summary
We present a new analysis and interpretation of a well-established climate record that spans the past 5 million years. We describe how the energy the Earth receives from the Sun is transferred among climate cycles with different duration. This analysis offers new insights into the complex evolution of the global climate system and land-ice volumes during this time. Furthermore, it provides a more complete solution to the long-standing 40 000- and ~100 000-year problems of the ice ages.
