EM wave vs magnetic field


I think your problem is you confuse electromagnetic waves and static magnetic fields.

Electromagnetic radiation consists of waves of electric and magnetic fields, but not all configurations of electric and magnetic fields are described as "radiation." Certainly static fields, like the Earth's magnetic field and the other fields you describe, are not called "radiation."
