Does Technology destroy our relationship with Nature?

I am an environmental Literature student, and I am interested in people's responses about the constitution of Nature, Technology, and the relationship that is apparently slowly being degraded with Nature.

All responses are welcome.

    May 3 2013: i feel that you are looking at the effect and not the cause. Technology doesn't destroy our relationship with nature. It merely gives us an avenue with which to do so. We on the other hand choose what our relationship with nature is! like this if i may: we can use technology to grow a garden in the most arid place on earth, here, technology is actually helping us strengthen our relationship with Nature.
