Aquaman star Jason Momoa made a passionate speech on behalf of the island nations, at the United Nations on Friday. The Hawaii-born star joined world leaders at the UN General Assembly to review the progress made by Samoa Pathway.

Samoa Pathway is a UN program adopted in 2014 to address the unique environmental issues that are impacting developing small island states.

Momoa talked about the results of ocean plastic pollution, and rising sea levels.

"Island nations contribute the least to this disaster, but are made to suffer the weight of its consequences. Our governments, and corporate entities have known for decades that immediate change is needed. Yet change still has not come."

Momoa also said that humans are the only species willing to force disharmony with the natural balance of our world."

"We are the living consequences of forgotten traditions," he added.

Momoa made a post about the experience on Instagram on Friday, and called it "life-changing." He wrote: "It takes an amazing team, and support system to pull off something like this. I am deeply grateful to my wife, and children, my mother." He also shared video of his entire speech on Instagram, and captioned it: "No BS. Nothing sugar coated, just straight from the heart."

Momoa had been speaking about climate change, and ocean pollution on many occasions. Last month, he used his social media presence to help spread awareness about the fires across the Amazon rainforest to his roughly 13 million Instagram followers.
