Yes and no.Like previous technological advances was one of the main factor of environmental degradation because they are used to hurt the nature. However, the Environmental degradation is more a consequence of human beings indifferent to the environment (on resource extraction, the oil spill in the ocean, having huge mountains of waste that is extremely harmful to other species). Previous advances in technology has been a tool used by human beings, such as the steam locomotive, etc, and obviously does not help but it is not exactly what caused the environmental degradation.
