Have you considered the presence of more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? So, what is the effect of MORE CO2 on the people of Baguio? Is the marked drop in temperature in Baguio a sure sign of oxygen inversion? Your explanation is a general explanation but Baguio has something local to it because of the temperature drop which is A FUNCTION RELATED TO ATMOSPHERIC INVERSION OR HENCE OXYGEN INVERSION.

Do you want me to explain? Why is meningococcemia not a threat to lowlanders? Why does it occur more in Baguio?

Read this:
Causes: Meningococci (0.6 X 0.8 mm) are gram-negative single cocci or diplococci with flattened adjacent sides. Older cultures can vary considerably in size and shape. A polysaccharide capsule is present, and this is the basis of serotyping. They grow on media that contains blood at temperatures of 35-37°C in a MOIST ENVIRONMENT REDUCED IN OXYGEN and containing 5-19% carbon dioxide.
