He opposes increased action on climate change by the Australian government and has warned of the lack of precision of climate and economic modelling, drawing on work by economist Robert Pindyck. During the COVID-19 pandemic, as the economics editor for The Australian, Creighton has been an ardent critic of government-implemented lockdowns to curb the spread of COVID-19 and praised Sweden’s less restrictive approach to slowing the spread of the virus.

Creighton’s defence of the Swedish government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic drew criticism from other sections of the media, with Crikey’s Guy Rundle claiming that Creighton’s columns were “a compendium of false comparisons”, and The Guardian’s Jason Wilson writing that Creighton’s claims were “flatly contradicted by published epidemiological research”.

Adam Creighton has referred to strict lockdowns as an affront to personal liberty and reflective of what he calls “health fascism”.
