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: Unfortunately most modern people don't have a relationship with nature to destroy. How much of what was common knowledge that our great grandparents had has persisted? How many people on this thread could hunt and gather or grow their own food? Chances are that if you've driven in a car, bus, train or plane you are pretty much unaware of nature. Once people started buying food from someone else they loose contact with nature.
