I think two things caught my attention:

1) physical pen and paper for initial thinking, I came to the same conclusion independently. Now I start every new issue with a brainstorm + outline on paper before moving it to Notion where I type it up

2) the thing you learned on how complex it is. I'm realizing the exact same thing. From covering a new area in climate every two weeks, I keep noticing that they're also somehow intertwined. The clearest example of this is with renewable energy <> skilled labor shortage <> supply chain <> home electrification. But even just yesterday, I was talking to a founder of a indoor agriculture startup and we ended up talking about energy prices and HVAC systems. Crazy how this complexity stuff keeps popping up
