My climate crisis superpower: being a reasonably compassionate and sensitive person who nevertheless disassociates when things get gnarly (thanks goldilocks-level childhood trauma!). So I stay engaged most of the time, and withdraw into my safety shell as needed.

I'm not saying it's a perfect method - far from. But I do think it provides some level of burnout-resistance.

And I'm curious what other mechanisms we might to use to withstand more exposure to the emotional radiation of this thing.
