At the North and South pole we've reached the maximum amount of degrees, that is 90. 

Keep in mind that the degrees aren't the temperature, but the distance from the equator.

Slide 5 - Video

Meridians of longitude run from the North pole to the South pole and run in a 360 degree circle.

This prime meridian runs through Greenwich and splits the Earth in the Western and Eastern hemispheres.
