Yeah, what California needs is another 100M people all sharing the existing roads, university system, and electricity grid. Then it would really be great here.

Too much concentration in a few areas, but overall, the state is not overpopulated.

The only overpopulated aspect of California is the segment which receive benefits from the state without paying anything in. Otherwise, I feel the state is large enough to handle the population it has and would probably feel a bit less crowded with some much needed upgrades to the infrastructure.

California has some of the most beautiful and diverse environmental areas in the world, I would hate to see them paved over in the name of progress. Something tells me that Orange County pre-sprawl, was a much more pleasant place to live, I even hear Orange County had orange groves back then

It is possible to increase population without horizontal growth. The mistakes of the past don't necessarily need to be repeated given the knowledge we now have. I'm not naive enough to believe we won't keep making the same mistakes... but it is possible not to.

With the right kind of planning, California could accomodate 100 Million people no problem.

Well, except maybe for that little water issue. LOL
