''The report said that years ago city planners
had envisioned building a facility that turns salt
water into fresh water, and financial woes
make that impossible''
If I changed to '', but finacial woes made that impossible'' wouldn't it sound as something related to the report is impossible? Weren't the financial woes sufficient during the time of the envision? It would be incorrect this replacement: ''and financial woes had make that impossible'' or more correct?
Hello bhaisahab; But why using past simple doesn't wrongfully affect the time proceeding? Thank you
