We argue that, while Milankovitch variations in solar radiation undoubtedly have a major influence on the timing of the Quaternary ice ages, they are incidental to their underlying causes. Based on observations of the significance of CO2, we propose a simple energy balance type model which has the ability to explain the underlying oscillatory nature of ice ages.
