Heavy rains and flooding inundated an Abbott Laboratories baby formula production facility in Sturgis, Michigan this week, halting formula production amid a nationwide shortage of baby formula that has foisted yet another crisis on parents of young children. Extreme rainfall is a clear signal of climate change, which is mainly caused by the extraction and combustion of fossil fuels. The facility is located about 100 miles south-southeast of Midland, where heavy flooding just over two years ago caused dam failures.
