Question Description

Which cycle has the biggest impact on solar insolation, eccentricity, obliquity or precession? 


Wikipedia says that — e sin(ϖ) is the precession index, which together with obliquity, controls the seasonal cycle of insolation. 
So think either obliquity or precession influence it biggest. I am thinking maybe precession plays a larger role? But I am not sure, could anyone correct me or explain a little bit?

Obliquity influences insonation more.

Precession occurs in 26000 years and has a negligible effect on insolation.
