Your question is great for a google search. I
searched for 'hottest desert,' and google gave me
choices such as 'hottest deserts of the world' and
'hottest deserts of the US,' but I just searched
for 'hottest desert.' The first google hit is for
the 5 hottest deserts, on a site about how stuff
works. I'll check out the hits now, to see if
they agree about what is the hottest desert.
OK - the sites seem to agree that the Sahara is
the hottest desert. It's also the largest hot
desert, but Antarctica is a larger desert; it just
isn't hot. Wikipedia says the Arctic is also a
larger desert than the Sahara, but of course it
isn't hot either.
