There's a must-read essay by ROB NIXON on the Harvard Journalism School's Nieman Storyboard site. Entitled "Slow Violence and Environmental Storytelling," the essay asks and answers this question, "How can environmental writers craft emotionally involving stories from disasters that are slow-moving and attritional, rather than explosive and spectacular?"

By the way, Rob says the Nieman Storyboard is probably the best source for tips on writing creative nonfiction, so after you read his essay, you might want to explore the site.

There's also a very nice interview with Rob by Amitava Kumar on the Huff Post.
