Why there is no magnetic field around a disconnected copper wire

Moving electrons produce magnetic field right? Electrons on earth are moving at an average of 27.83m/s due to earths rotation plus 30m/s due to earths revolution and may be more due to sun’s revolution and our galaxy’s revolution.
since there is no absolute motion, how can we tell if electrons are moving?
If the electrons are moving, anyway, why is there no magnetic field around a disconnected copper wire?

Right hand rule is a physics principle applied to electric current passing through a straight wire, resulting in a magnetic field. The thumb points in the direction of the conventional current (from positive to negative), and the fingers in the direction of the magnetic field. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
