  5. eccentricity
  1. a the shape of earth's orbit
  2. b the wobble of the earth on its axis (11,000 year period to move between extremes)
  3. c Precession, obliquity, and eccentricity
  4. d orbital parameters affecting how much energy earth receives from the sun
  5. e ice that is drilled out of glaciers. Gas bubbles in them give a direct measurement of what the climate was like in the past
