As the climate change conversation heats up, more and more surprising celebrity faces are getting involved to take action.

That's how Aquaman's Jason Momoa came to address the UN on September 27, telling world leaders that they are failing to put off climate change.

In his rousing speech, he called humanity a, "disease that's infecting our planet" – controversial words, maybe, but true ones.

The six-minute long address, in which Momoa says, "our ego, our fear, and our relentless drive for profits have made us the only species willing to force disharmony with the natural balance of our world,” has made the rounds online.

Many people are pointing out the difference in the way Momoa's speech has been received to the way Greta Thunberg's activism has.

People have been receptive to Momoa's six-minute speech, whereas the passionate, autistic teenager's relentless commitment has made her the subject of bullying.

Many have pointed out the inherent hypocrisy in the disparity, while others are vocally in favour of a superhero movie that sees the pair teaming up and fighting climate change together.

At least then Greta would have someone to defend her from the cruel bullies.

Others, have immediately started stanning the pair and are hopefully of some sort of climate change superhero team up in the future.
