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.

    A: I don't know.
    Other questions might be, can we aspire to create technology that is respectful of nature, is essentially, nature-friendly and what exactly does that look like?

      Other questions........one question leads to the next.....!

      Can technology be "respectful of nature"? Does technology make choices? Does technology think and feel?
      My guess is that it does not. So, perhaps it is humans who decide how to use technology?
