A vehicle's air conditioning system does not create cold air. It actually takes the heat and moisture out of the air that is already in your car, leaving behind cooler air. Then it flows into the receiver dryer/accumulator that contains adesiccant bag to remove and collect unwanted moisture/water and impurities.

Is starting your car with the AC on bad? Depends on the model and year of the car in question. It's not really particularly bad to start with the AC on, specifically. But the HVAC fan (whether it's in heat, vent, or AC mode) and wiper motor coming on as soon as you turn the key are going to wear the ignition switch contacts out faster.
