Have recently been reading about EMP from an air burst nuclear device.
Is this a real threat? Can one mitigate against it?
Would it cause shutdown of electrical and internet grids?

Eddie, excellent question but.

But there is another very comprehensive and interesting thread on the subject. Maybe better if you start there.

For what it is worth, in my opinion, an EMP airburst is the most likely deployment of nuclear weapons, if it ever comes to that.
