A lot of people worrying about something they don't really understand.

The EMP from a extra-atmospheric nuke will mainly affect radio communications over admittedly a fairly wide area but only for a limited time (measured in minutes). Solar flares can also be disruptive but again the effects will be limited in scope and duration.
