Actually if you read evidence based sources, EMP effects are pretty limited in degree and/or area. Since it's an inverse squared deal and requires a high altitude air burst to maximize coverage area, you don't actually get much bang for the buck (yes, I'm going to hell for that pun) out of EMP attacks.
And so, we are safe from just how big of an EMP attack? What happens if it is bigger than that?

A discussion about EMP is a bit off-topic for this thread, IMO.
